Sisterhood 'New Moon' Rosh Chodesh Gathering

Did you know that each Jewish Month has been imparted with an energy all its own?
A joyful monthly women’s Rosh Chodesh gathering will inspired by the mystical vibrancy of the Jewish month in everyday life.

13 years ago before craft cold-brewed coffee, artisanal pickles, and rampant gentrification, Simcha and Ariella Weinstein saw the potential of an awakening with pride in Brooklyn.

Reaching out to literally tens of thousands of our neighbors. Maybe you are one? Students have joined us at our legendary Shabbat dinners for Pratt Institute and the downtown Brooklyn Collegiate Community. Young professionals and families have participated in High Holiday services, Passover Seders, Chanukah Parties, Lag B’Omer BBQs, Shavuot Torahthons, Sisterhood Events, Shabbat Morning Kids Groups, Film Screenings, Art Openings, lectures and book signings.

Our DIY community reflects and embraces the diversity of our neighborhood and celebrates the mitzvah of exploring, sharing, creating, incubating, and showcasing creative self-expression and reflection!
