About the Event
This month we will be gathering on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan, the new moon of the month of Cheshvan! This moment in Jewish time is about digesting/composting/ integrating the intensity of Tishrei, resting in the stillness of a month without holidays. On Rosh Chodesh people traditionally gather to study, honor shechina/the divine feminine aspects of the eternal, and rejoice that we are still alive to watch time turn. Honoring the cycles of time also provides an opportunity to set intentions for the month and take stock of what is and what has been.
Together we will do some text study on stillness and set intentions for the month to come. If it is accessible to you, please bring a candle or a rock and sit in a place where you can see the sky.
General Description: Calling all Disabled Jewish Farmers! We'd love for you to join our community of disabled (or crip, Deaf***, mad, mentally ill, neurodivergent, chronic pain, chronically ill, etc) folks to gush and kvell** at our magic while sharing what it’s like to be a farmer (or to *want* to be a farmer) as disabled people—the woes, frustrations, victories, and connections we have with the land. We gather monthly with rotating facilitators and would love for you to join our next call! 🌸
***ASL interpretation is not currently provided, but we welcome signers to join with VRS interpreters. If ASL interpretation would enable you to participate, email us ASAP at email@example.com so we can arrange for interpretation. These meetings have automated closed captions. We are committed to finding ways to meet each other's access needs.
**kvell is a Yiddish word for feeling or expressing pride and/or delight
