This week Rosh Chodesh Society was held to mark the beginning of the month of Elul. Our monthly women’s shiur met for a new series of classes: Women in Tanach & Beyond. These classes will delve deep into the text and midrash of historic jewish heroines, unravelling the Torah perspective on women and the kabbalah of the feminine.
A big thank you to Dr Ellen Selkon for a presentation on the importance of women’s health and screening!
In keeping with the theme of Elul as a month of preparation and anticipation for Rosh Hashanah, hundreds of toiletries were brought in and lovingly packaged for women and children at local shelters and women’s refuge. A total of over 50 packages were put together, with packages of necessities and pampering items for women, toiletries for children, and bags for babies with baby soaps and shampoos.
The salad bar was also great!
