It's a new year now, 5776 in the counting of the Jewish calendar. This year I am exploring Rosh Chodesh, for myself and for Jewish women all over the globe.
Rosh Chodesh is the tiny sliver or invisible new moon each month, and it is significant for many reasons.
In this, my first post on Rosh Chodesh, which occurs with four weeks and four days to honor Shabbos between each new moon, I'd like to share this quote from Rabbi Manis Friedman because he has a Rosh Chodesh Network with monthly videos, which I love to watch:
"... of course women don't work on Rosh Chodesh, it's their holiday..."
That puts Rosh Chodesh right up there with Shabbos and some of the High Holy Days, doesn't it?
This is what I will be exploring this year, 5776. Thanks for joining me!
