Motherhood in the Modern Age Explored at TBA Rosh Hodesh
Temple B’nai Abraham’s Sisterhood-The Women’s Connection Rosh Hodesh program in the Hebrew month of Heshvan (November) focused on the theme of “Motherhood in the Modern Age.” Rabbi Faith Joy Dantowitz, who leads the monthly Rosh Hodesh at TBA, framed the program with a traditional and modern interpretation of the passage from Proverbs 31 which begins: “A woman of valor who can find, her worth is far beyond that of rubies.” [Proverbs 31:10] Women of various generations reflected on their shared and different experiences as mothers.
“It was a wonderful evening of Sisterhood, connection, warmth, and learning. Those in attendance were inspired by panelists Jane Eisenstat, Donna Ellenbogen and Miriam Palmer-Sherman as well as all of the women present who explored the joys and challenges of motherhood,” noted Rabbi Dantowitz.
