Rosh Chodesh group

The Rosh Chodesh Group meets at the beginning of each month in the Jewish calendar, usually in people's houses.

It’s an opportunity for women of all ages in the community to get to know one another better whilst discussing a topical subject of Jewish interest, always followed, of course, by delicious refreshments! Usually we have a guest speaker, either a member of Muswell Hill Shul or a visitor, and we welcome suggested topics and speakers. If you haven’t come before, or are new to the shul, or thinking of becoming a member, do come along. Email  if you’d like to join our mailing list.

Some ideas from an informal discussion of opportunities for empowering women through learning – suggestions below and anything else that you think of. 

SOME SUGGESTIONS:

1-  We can all gain in Jewish knowledge – individually and/or by forming a study group.

2 – We can improve our level of Hebrew in conversation groups.

3 – We can learn to say kaddish.

4 – We can acquire practical skills for the women’s services, such as leyning and leading davening.

5 – We can bring courses from LSJS (the London School of Jewish Studies).

6 – We can design and publicise a bat mitzvah programme – with booklets for families that incorporate a commitment for the girl that goes beyond the bat mitzvah year – eg reading at least 3 verses at least twice over the following two years.

7 –  We can form a focus group – parents and youth – to find out what they want and how to make it exciting.

8 –  We can create intergenerational learning programme – perhaps including shared films, discussions on moral issues, etc.

9 –  We can have a women’s kaddish co-ordinator for women to offer 5-min communal learning in someone’s memory – as well as kaddish.

10 – We can have a baby blessing co-ordinator for women to write something to say communally.

11 – We can organise women’s readings of Ruth, Shir Hashirim and Kohelet at the appropriate festivals.
