Women's Only New Moon Club

New Moon Club

Bringing women together in a creative and eclectic atmosphere for a monthly break from the mundane in celebration of the Jewish Woman's holiday, "Rosh Chodesh" (literally "new moon"), celebrating the new Hebrew month. 

Each month's program will touch upon one of four important themes: arts & culture, spirituality, the woman's body, and women & professionalism.

All are welcome, and there is no commitment to attend every month!

This venture is co-sponsored by The Collaborative, Hillel's Graduate Student Network, and Moishe House Philadelphia.
