Women’s New Moon Service
Tuesday March 12 8:00-9:15pm
At the Women’s Center (34 South Williams Street)
Come Celebrate the New Moon!
Though many of us never heard of Rosh Chodesh as a women’s holiday when we were growing up, we now understand that like so much of our inheritance as Jewish women, the fact that we did not know about it doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. Many of our great-grandmothers probably did observe Rosh Chodesh, either by reciting a special techineh (woman’s prayer) or by refraining from certain kinds of work.
Come to honor the traditions of our mothers and grandmothers. Traditions lost and traditions still being recovered.
We will enjoy the company of one another through a service followed by enjoying some delicious desserts 🙂
Rabbi Jordie Gerson, Erin-Kate Escobar, Sophie Case, and Aviva Gottesman

SOME THOUGHTS ON READING BLACK CULTURE
WITH ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR KEVIN QUASHIE
FROM SMITH COLLEGE’S
(DEPARTMENT OF AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES & PROGRAM FOR THE STUDY OF WOMEN AND GENDER)
For more than a decade, I have been interested in how a notion of quiet might change the common ways we understand black American culture. This question has been prominent in my teaching at Smith College and is considered in a book published last summer, The Sovereignty of Quiet. In this informal conversation, I will talk about this idea of quiet, and how it has gained meaningfulness through my work at the college.
DATE: Thur, March 21st
TIME: 6:00 PM
