Our Vision

The Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle is a unique and dynamic program where women come together to learn and to laugh, to celebrate life and tradition in the welcoming atmosphere of camaraderie, acceptance and discovery.

As the treasure trove of history and stories unfold, lasting mementos are created on a DVD for future generations. Women of different ages and stages, of different backgrounds and views, with different life experiences and dreams for the future, are all joined together by Rosh Chodesh, the new Month or the New Moon.

That sliver of the moon which heralds in each month connects us and reminds us of each month’s powers and blessings, recognising who we are and what we do.

Reward and recognition, nurturing and empowerment, creating lasting legacies and connecting to our legacies, to our traditions and to each other – this is the vision of the Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle.

Our Values

Nurturing

As she journeys through life, nurturing her family and others around her, each woman contributes to building and shaping the future for her family, community and future generations. This is the time for women to meet together so they may reflect on themselves and with each other – feeling beautifully nurtured and accepted in the process.

Connecting

Each Jewish woman has her unique tale. While sharing and connecting through stories, the unique story of each woman is woven into the fabric of the continuous spiral of Jewish history.  Women connect within their affiliate group extending to the wider community and beyond.

Empowering

At each RCWC event, as women share with each other their family story, they begin to understand themselves better, and the other women, too, gain insight and wisdom from others’ stories.  Their voices are heard, the messages are understood evolving into a beautiful feminine strength and empowerment.

Our Mission

Our mission is to recognise and empower all Jewish women so that they in turn can inspire, educate and support each other in building connections, thus creating a harmonious and meaningful society with lasting legacies.  Each woman is encouraged to explore the individual mission of her life.

Our Goals

  • Create opportunities for  Jewish women to come together to celebrate the new month of the Hebrew calendar
  • Provide a meaningful and relevant themed message for each month specifically to empower women and connect them to their Judaism.
  • Encourage lasting and meaningful friendships, both new and old, amongst the women in your very own community.
  • Give women from diverse backgrounds a voice and to create lasting legacies for future generations.
  • Empower women to develop a unique sense of self by recording and appreciating their experiences.
