On October 21, 2009  more than 50 women,  members of the Elwood Talmud Torah Shule in Melbourne Australia, attended the inaugural Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle event at the home of their Rebbetzin Sara Gutnick.  The Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle, sponsored by the Blaser Family, is a uniquely empowering and innovative program for women founded by Rebbetzin Gutnick together with co-founder Elissa Blaser.

For the next five years the Elwood women were invited to a Rosh Chodesh evening of reward and recognition, connecting through their stories, absorbing the messages of every month, being nurtured and nourished in an atmosphere of camaraderie and acceptance. Due its appeal and popularity moves were soon afoot to expand and offer this outstanding program to women’s groups in Melbourne.

In October 2013  Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle™, Inc was registered with IP Australia as a trademarked name and registered as a not-for–profit association with ASIC regulated by Australian Consumer Affairs. With the helpful guidance of consultants and the founding members our first Board meeting took place early in 2014 to formulate a mission, a vision and goals.

We set to the task of preparing all manner of materials to fulfil our goals and our first affiliate event took place for Rosh Chodesh  Cheshvan of that year.   In March 2015 RCWC was registered as a charity with the ACNC (Australian Charities and Not-for–profits Commission).  Australia ABN: 18166217090. With thanks to Hashem we are continuing to grow and look forward to going ‘mei’chayil el choyil’ from strength to strength.
