Join with women of all ages as we welcome the new moon and the new Hebrew month of Av. Av contains two little known, but fascinating observances: Tisha B’Av, where we remember the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and Tu B’Av, a day dedicated to the celebration of sisterhood and love. Together we will learn more about these times and how we can honor feelings of loss and love in our own lives.
Wine, teas, and desserts provided. Questions? Email Stacy. This program is co-sponsored by KeSHEr, Shaare Emeth’s Women’s Connection group.
