Rejuvenate each Rosh Chodesh with JNF.
Rosh Chodesh is the day a new Jewish month begins. In biblical times, the Israelites made sacrificial offerings and sounded the Shofar (ram’s horn) to mark the day. Women abstained from work as a symbolic recognition of the women of Israel who refused to give up their jewelry to make the Golden Calf (the idol made when Moses was on Mount Sinai). The holiday has been claimed by the Jewish women’s movement. Jewish women often gather to study and pray on Rosh Chodesh as a celebration of women. The day also serves as a time for renewal and reflection for many Jews. It is a day to think about the precious month, what errors one made, and how the next month may be made better.
