Rosh Chodesh, Jewish Women & Spirituality

Video/Audio Image

12 Part audio series.
Each part approx 1 Hour 30 minutes.


As the Israelites journey through the wilderness and are camped at Sinai, the moment of great spiritual height, the Revelation at Sinai, also contains the moment of great spiritual betrayal, the Golden Calf. In this twelve part series, we will study this text and bring in Talmud and Midrash that outline the women's role in this event and how Rosh Chodesh, the new moon, has become their trusted keepsake. From Torah through Talmud and beyond, we will study questions of Judaism, women and spirituality.
