Rosh Chodesh (“New Moon”): A Women’s Group at Kerem Shalom – An invitation to all in the community. Rosh Chodesh, the time of the new moon, traditionally provides an opportunity for women to come together for monthly meetings based on themes in the Jewish calendar. We will spend time studying and discussing topics relevant to our lives, relaxing, getting to know each other and supporting one another’s journeys. Rosalie Gerut will facilitate. Monday mornings from 9:00am – 10:30am. The first meeting is November 18, 2013.

Kerem Shalom is a diverse and welcoming, Jewish community located in historic Concord, Massachusetts. With many interfaith families, Kerem Shalom is a vibrant, supportive home for Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and ohavey Yisrael – those who are not Jewish, but love the Jewish people and support the Jewish choices of their families. We are strengthened by our shared heritage and the diversity of backgrounds, family composition, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, race and economic status.
While we are officially unaffiliated, our philosophy and approach to Jewish life are closest to Reconstructionism, which emphasizes the importance of Jewish community and peoplehood. We carry on our rich heritage through our observances of Jewish holidays, life-cycle events and the rituals and traditions of Jewish life.
For more than 30 years, we have been a home for individuals and families providing opportunities for prayer, child and adult education, and social action. Members come from as close as Concord, Acton, and Lexington and as far away as Newton, Cambridge, Tewksbury, Leominster, and New Hampshire.
Please look more closely at our worship; school; family and adult programming; and social action events here on the web site. Enjoy browsing and COME VISIT ANY TIME. Our services and events are open to all!
