Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community
Rosh Chodesh – the celebration of each new month in the Jewish calendar – offers a chance to reflect, set new intentions, and consider new possibilities. Given the lunar cycle, it’s also an opportune time to highlight and honor Jewish women who have made a difference in the world – writers, artists, philosophers, humanitarians – and whose yahrzeit occurs in the given month. Kol Ami’s adult education program is planning to start a series of 4 Rosh Chodesh observances during the coming year. The first will take place Sunday, August 28 as the month of Elul begins.
These participatory celebrations will be open to all Kol Ami members regardless of gender. If you would like to participate, or even help lead these gatherings, please email Susan Freiband through our coordinator ().
