Rosh Chodesh Society Schedule

Rosh Chodesh Society Schedule


 

Do you ever find that life is tumultuous, like a ship crashing about on the waves of a roaring ocean storm, with unexpected challenges throwing us about in every which way? Fortunately for us, buried within our tool-chest is an anchor we can cast to restore stability!

This years' Rosh Chodesh Society course for women is about taking to heart life’s simple truths, the ones that empower us to overcome our everyday struggles; not by facing the challenges one by one, but by finding our center and aligning with our inner truth.

It is a spiritual search for G‑d, from a cosmopolitan, down-to-earth, and plain-spoken approach. It’s about training ourselves to see G‑d in the small miracles of everyday life and about gaining perspective when we’re in the gym, on the road, or in the kitchen.

In Simple Truths we'll grapple with fundamental Jewish viewpoints that profoundly shift our perspective. We'll train ourselves to see G‑d’s hand in every situation; and, where G‑d is discovered, challenge becomes opportunity, negative becomes positive, setback becomes turning point, and vulnerability and weakness become impetuses for growth and connection.

Feel free to invite a friend.

CLAIM YOUR INHERITANCE

SESSION ONE 

CLAIM YOUR INHERITANCE

Y'know the story of the fellow that followed a dream of a treasure in a far-away land only to hear ppl there talk of a dream of a treasure under his own kitchen?

Oftentimes we chase a dream to find a treasure that was dormant within our own reach.

This discussion draws clarity on foundational perspectives that lie within our reach us to guide us in times of doubt. It highlights the value of Torah, and why does Judaism venerate its study above all else.

WHERE PLEASURE MEETS PURPOSE

SESSION TWO 

WHERE PLEASURE MEETS PURPOSE

It is only natural to want to enjoy life’s pleasures. At the same time, all the pleasures on earth cannot satisfy our inner craving for deeper meaning and purpose.

How are we to balance our inner tug toward all things pleasurable with our human need for meaning and spirituality? Are these desires mutually exclusive? Can they ever align in pursuit of a common goal? This lesson explores the intersection of these two potent human needs, to extract secrets to wholesome living from the wellsprings of Jewish teaching.

CREATION REVISITED

SESSION THREE 

CREATION REVISITED

We are all creators, made in the image of G‑d, the ultimate Creator. But is the difference between our ability to create and G‑d’s merely a quantitative one?

This lesson unearths foundational principles of Jewish thought regarding G‑d’s creation of the world, unearthing ageless wisdom for reframing our approach to life’s obstacles, dealing with anxiety and doubt, and seeing the value in every moment.

THE BEAUTY OF THE STRUGGLE

SESSION FOUR 

THE BEAUTY OF THE STRUGGLE

Imperfection is human. Yet little makes us feel worse than our character deficiencies. Our less-than-noble thoughts and feelings lead to inner turmoil and lowered self-perception, hampering our motivation to grow and change.

How can we remain motivated toward change and uphold a positive view of ourselves while battling dejection over our constant struggles with our character flaws? This lesson explores how we can reframe our apparent deficiencies as inspiring pathways to personal growth, inner joy, and spiritual fulfillment.

OVERCOMING LIMITATION

SESSION FIVE 

OVERCOMING LIMITATION

To be human is to have an innate desire for greatness—a drive to pursue our noblest dreams, to actualize our highest potential.

In this lesson we will focus on how to capitalize on our strengths. We’ll learn how to draw upon the things about us that are fundamentally good, and transcend our self-perceived limitations to take them to the level of “great”—and, considering the vast reservoir of potential within us, there is never a limit to how great we can become.

TO LOVE ANOTHER

SESSION SIX 

TO LOVE ANOTHER

The quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our quality of life. But in a world where digital communication and social media are increasingly replacing real-world communication, the capacity to truly connect to others seems more and more like a lost art. How do we cultivate genuine empathy, trust, acceptance, and love in our relationships?

This lesson teaches us how to peel away all of the superficialities that divide us, and we discover what ultimately unites us, allowing us to develop truly deep and fulfilling relationships with others.

JOY REVEALED

SESSION SEVEN

JOY REVEALED

If you assumed that Judaism was about being somber and sullen, you have not met the real deal.

This lesson demonstrates the extraordinary emphasis that Judaism places on being joyful, explores the role of happiness for the sake of personal well-being and success, and presents a step-by-step journey to achieving happiness based on a deeper appreciation of the purpose of life.
