Rosh Khodesh: New Moon GatherDate: Saturday, April 9, 2016Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Did you know that each Jewish month – marked by the new moon – has its own mythology, including Zodiac sign, special color and sensory input? New Moon Gather is a chance to celebrate the new month in a welcoming context, rich with learning and music. April 9 brings Nisan, and themes of exodus celebrated during Passover. Book of J (Jewlia EIsenberg of Charming Hostess and Jeremiah Lockwood of Sway Machinery) will teach and perform songs of Passover, diaspora and justice. We open with tea, cake and text study, we close with a ritual outside under the dark sky of the new moon. A great way to bring in the new month with joy and intention!
