Every month on the new moon, I celebrate my body, my Judaism, my womanism and my connection to the earth. Through this practice I have deepened my connection to Torah and most especially to community. While living in Brooklyn, I helped organize monthly gatherings that incorporated Jewish thought, personal stories and crafts. In Berkeley, I am a part of a Rosh Chodesh Group that meets together every month to both learn about the month and connect to each other. I also am part of a project, Chodesh Chaim, that puts together short videos about the Jewish Months.
Here you will find brief reflections on the different months. To receive my full length monthly Rosh Chodesh Newsletters, which include information about the sense, body part, herb, zodiac and more, sign up here
