Rosh Chodesh with Havdalah

Saturday, November 2, 2019 4 Cheshvan 5780

6:00 PM - 8:00 PMTemple Emanu-El

Ladies of Temple Emanu-El, please join Cantor Edmondson and Sisterhood as we celebrate Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan - the new month of Cheshvan. This month is often called  Mar Cheshvan , meaning "bitter Cheshvan." It's referred to as bitter not just because of the colder weather, but mainly because there are no major holidays that occur during the month. But it doesn't have to be bitter for us. We will gather together for Havdalah - to recognize the separation between Shabbat and the everyday. While we acknowledge those differences, we will simultaneously acknowledge and honor the diversity we claim as Jews in this very special Havdalah service. We'll also have the opportunity to create a special ritual object for our own Havdalah use at home - a spice box. We suggest a donation of $10 for supplies. This special experience will take place at Temple Emanu-El in the BFR on Saturday evening, November 2nd, beginning at 6PM. We thank Sisterhood for providing a light dinner for us this evening, as well. 

Please RSVP to the Temple Emanu-El office no later than Thursday, October 31st. Click here to email the office.


In the Notes section, please list the names of all attendees.

Sorry, Registration has ended.
