Chabad Of East Boca Presents ‘A Reason to Celebrate’

South-Florida-logo

On November 3 the Rosh Chodesh Society,  an international Jewish sisterhood that aims to empower, inform, and inspire women through Jewish learning, launches its newest course, A Reason to Celebrate: Illuminating Our Lives through the Jewish Holidays. The Rosh Chodesh Society is a division of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement’s Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).

Slated to run in some 150 locations around the world, A Reason to Celebrate is a meaningful, personal and spiritual journey through special days on the Jewish calendar. Through exploring the deeper, mystical significance of these days, they become lenses through which we gain insight into our relationships and our identities as Jewish women, and catalysts that empower us to implement positive change in our lives.

The course will be taught once a month for seven consecutive months and is designed for women at all levels of Jewish knowledge. Among the diverse set of topics discussed are the relevance of Judaism in a modern age; understanding and coping with pain and suffering; living a wholesome life despite internal fragmentation and conflict; Judaism’s view of femininity; discovering and actualizing one’s personal mission in life; the true meaning of freedom and how to attain it; and timeless wisdom encoded in the Ten Commandments that changes the way we view our relationships and our world.

“Some of my earliest and most powerful childhood memories are bound to the festivities that heralded the arrival of the Jewish holidays,” said Rosh Chodesh Society director Shaindy Jacobson. “These special celebrations are the inspiration behind our new course. To sense the meaning, to taste the anticipation, to feel the joy of the Jewish holidays – this has been, and continues to be, to me, Jewish living at its best. This course is a gift that will allow thousands of Jewish women around the globe to live this experience.”

“I am confident the women of Boca Raton will love this course,” said Ahuva New, Chabad of East Boca, facilitator for the Society. “Its teachings and insights will resonate deeply, challenge our perspectives, empower us to improve ourselves and our relationships, and allow us to experience the joy and meaning of the holidays on an entirely new level.”

The seven sessions will draw from a broad spectrum of mystical, classical, and contemporary Jewish texts, providing intellectually stimulating and inspiring sessions for women of all ages and walks of life. For more information on the course, visit www.roshchodeshsociety.com/courses.

Mrs. New will be teaching A Reason to Celebrate at 120 NE 1st Avenue, Boca Raton on the first Sunday of every month starting November 3. For more information, call 561-417-7797.
