Rosh Chodesh Gathering and Havdalah: New Moon of Elul


August 27, 2022


07:00 PM - 08:30 PM EDT


Rosh Chodesh is the monthly holiday that celebrates the arrival of the new moon, marking the start of a new month in the Jewish calendar. This summer, as part of our Spiritual Practice Lab, we will celebrate the three months of the summer tekufah (season) with three Rosh Chodesh gatherings of music, movement, and Torah.

Join us on Saturday, August 27 at 7:00 p.m. under the stars in the Temple Israel courtyard as we welcome the new month of Elul, a time to reset and open our hearts to the themes of renewal and repentance this High Holiday season. Led by Rabbi Andrew Oberstein and Yaakov Ginsberg-Schreck, we will celebrate through text study, meditation, movement, and song and end the evening with Havdalah.

This Rosh Chodesh Elul gathering is free and open to all. Contact Brigid Goggin at with questions.
