The Rosh Chodesh Society provides an opportunity for Jewish women from all walks of life to join together for inspirational Torah study that is both insightful and practical. These lessons will provide a deeper look into the timeless cornerstones of Judaism and aspects of Jewish life that are of unique relevance to women.

The Rosh Chodesh Society is a division of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). JLI is the largest institute of adult learning of its kind, teaching in over 300 cities around the world.

Rosh Chodesh, the day/s that celebrate the arrival of the new Jewish month, has long been recognized as a woman's holiday. Why do women merit a special holiday once a month? In the incident of the Golden Calf, the women had faith in G‑d and refused to relinquish their jewelry and take part in the creation of the calf. As a reward, G‑d gave them an extra holiday each month.

In communities throughout the world women gather together on Rosh Chodesh for study, discussion, spiritual creativity and fellowship. Join us here in Niagara for the next gathering of the Rosh Chodesh Society and become a part of this wonderful tradition.
