The Jewish Collaborative is not hosting Rosh Hodesh programs currently, but please read our weekly emails to learn about upcoming events. Thank you


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 2023 we will meet on the Sunday afternoon that precedes or coincides with the new Jewish month. 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!
