Shaarey Zedek Rosh Chodesh Group

7:00PM - 9:30PM  

Congregation Shaarey Zedek 561 Wellington Crescent
Winnipeg, Manitoba R3M 0A6


Leaving a Home, Making a Home: Immigration in Our Own Lives & the Lives of Our Mothers. Doors open 6:45 p.m. Program begins 7 p.m. In Nisan, we celebrate going out of Egypt. Our Rosh Chodesh gathering will be a time to share our heritage of going out of 'The Old Country'. How did you come to be in Winnipeg? What legacies do you have from your mother & grandmothers? New immigrants to Canada will tell their stories & spark our memories & conversation. The first of each Jewish month—the celebration of the new moon, its slender crescent barely visible in the night sky—is a day traditionally associated with women’s renewal and joy. Facilitated by Jane Enkin, Shaarey Zedek's new Women’s Rosh Chodesh Group will meet monthly to learn, explore and celebrate together. Each month we will welcome a guest teacher, drawn from a wide range of fields. Bring your daughter, your mother, your Baba, your best friend, your favourite aunty, or come on your own to join the celebration. Refreshments served. Walk-ins welcome. Registration encouraged for planning purposes.
