Through three articles by two American, Jewish authors Anne Roiphe and Cynthia Ozick, we’ll talk about Christmas trees and Judaism and some of the important Jewish questions that come up during this season of the year including Jewish-American identity, Jewish particularism and Jewish ritual, meaning and change.

About Rosh Chodesh:
What is Rosh Chodesh? A special day that Jewish feminists have "reclaimed" for feminine spirituality. Tradition says that as a reward for our faithfulness, God gave women Rosh Chodesh, the first day of the new month, and even exempted us from our usual household duties. 

The Rosh Chodesh Group is jointly sponsored by The Community Synagogue, Port Jewish Center, and Temple Beth Israel.
