Rosh Chodesh Iyar

Rooted Revolutions: Reinventing Jewish Time

Come celebrate and welcome in the month of Iyar, with Beth Am's Rabbi Miriam Philips.  We'll explore how Judaism continually makes "rooted revolutions," re-inventing the meaning of the seasons in ways that are meaningful for each generation while still staying rooted in tradition. In particular, we'll talk about how the modern Israeli holidays of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day), Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) and Yom Ha'atzma'ut (Israeli Independence Day) were created. We'll also explore how we make "rooted revolutions" in our own lives. All women are welcome. 

RSVP or for more information, please contact Lisa, (408) 448-4972.

Rosh Chodesh is a program of Beth Am Women.
