The Jewish Collaborative of OC joins with Kohenet Rachel Kann, founder of Realize Paradise, to offer a new Rosh Hodesh experience for all to enjoy. In this creative online space, Rachel will  nurture our imaginations as we dance in the shadows and energies of monthly new moons celebrated according to the Jewish calendar. Together we will welcome the full potential of each new month in which anything is possible. Bring a pen and paper, or whatever artistic tools you love to get creative with. The sky is the limit!
