Do you want to become a Rosh Chodesh leader? This involves keeping track of Rosh Chodesh and finding hosts each month. Then, you send an invite to the women of Ner Tamid. Easy, peasy! If you're interested, please contact the office.

What is Rosh Chodesh? Rosh Chodesh is our women's group at Ner Tamid. We meet monthly, usually in a member's home, and we are a very welcoming, casual group. If you are a woman of Ner Tamid - veteran or newbie, young or old - I encourage you to join us!
