The Jewish Collaborative of OC and Miriam's Circle Sisterhood join Kohenet Rachel Kann, founder of Realize Paradise, to offer a Rosh Hodesh experience for all to enjoy. In this creative online space, Rachel nurtures our imaginations and creativity as we dance in the shadows and energies of monthly new moons celebrated according to the Jewish calendar. Participants are encouraged to bring pen and paper or other artistic tools. The moon is the limit!

Times listed are Pacific.
