Women of Temple Beth Elohim (WTBE)
Give yourself the gift of a special night once each month by joining the Women of Temple Beth Elohim (WTBE) to celebrate Rosh Chodesh. Rosh Chodesh means ‘new moon’ and is an opportunity to socialize, learn and share.
We explore Jewish themes and enjoy each other’s company. Our gatherings are a place to make new friends, meet old friends and enjoy the energy created by learning together. Enjoy the discussion, study, formal presentation, informal conversation and shared food.
Join the Women of Temple Beth Elohim for a lively discussion with Rabbi Saphire on Jewish Texts and Perspectives on Journeying through Life as a Woman.
We are thankful to experience and transition through many stages in our lives. Few of our Sages two thousand years ago, or even two decades ago, would have marked transformative female lifecycle events (menstruation, childbirth/miscarriage, menopause, death of a mother, etc.) with Jewish ritual and ceremony. In our day, we recognize these moments as significant milestones and transitions. Many of us reach out for Jewish connections and meaning at these times. As we gather from varying generations and stages in life, we will explore the unique but unifying position we hold as women journeying through life. Share your life perspective as a woman and explore Jewish texts and modern ritual together. It will be a special evening.
