Hodesh Kislev Tov! Happy new month of Kislev!

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 / 28 Cheshvan 5776

Shalom,
As you can see from the (Hebrew) date above, and from any moon observations you may have made recently, the moon is rapidly waning, and will soon no longer be visible.  (See our blog post here for what the "new moon" means in the Hebrew calendar.) Rosh hodesh (the new moon/month) will fall this week on Wednesday evening, Thursday and Friday, so when we gather on November 13th for Shabbat we'll already be in the month of Kislev.  25 days into the month we'll celebrate the first night of Hanukkah!  Save the date of Sunday, Dec. 6 for our Kislev/Hanukkah Together b'Teva (in Nature) Hanukkah gathering.  This month it will be a little different: we're starting early afternoon so that we can go right into candle lighting and dinner for the 1st night of Hanukkah!  Come for just the Together b'Teva (in Nature) program, or for candle lighting and dinner, or for the whole time!  Watch for details soon.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Hodesh tov! May you have a light-filled month of Kislev!
