The December Money Dilemma…Coveting vs. Contentment Explored at TBA Rosh Hodesh
Sisterhood Rosh Hodesh group had a wonderful celebration in the middle of the month of Kislev with guest presenter, Rabbi Mary Zamore. Editor of The Sacred Exchange, Rabbi Zamore facilitated a stimulating discussion based on Jewish texts focused on the topics of contentment and coveting. Sharing texts from Torah and Talmud, our current challenges were seen through the lens of Jewish tradition. Noshes for the program included Fair Trade Hanukkah gelt (Divine chocolate).
Rosh Hodesh Adar!
Purim is celebrated in Adar, a month when we celebrate strong women in the Book of Esther and Purim. We spent the evening baking Hamantaschen, the iconic Purim holiday pastry and celebrating and learning about strong Jewish women. Rabbi Dantowitz led the baking and the learning. Everyone brought their rolling pin!
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.
