ROSH CHODESH SOCIETY

Monthly Courses for Women with Esther Winner 

For centuries, Jewish values have shaped the moral compass of Western society. This course explores and provides the students with an in-depth understanding of the key Jewish values that were so influential in molding our civilization. This course focuses on areas outside the domain of the synagogue and Jewish ritual and explore what it means to live as a Jew in “the rest of our life,” and how a Jewish woman is expected to interact with the world around her. It shines a spotlight on the Torah view of our social and ethical responsibilities. 

Each lesson of this course will contain an applicable, resonant, change-your-daily-life personal takeaway message for every woman who attends. 

This is a monthly course that happens on Shabbos from 11:30-12:30pm, followed by a Kiddush lunch. Classes coincide with our Shabbos Wonderland children's program, enabling for an enjoyable time for both you and your children.

The charge is $150 for the complete course, which includes books and lunch; or $25 per lesson.

LESSON ONE:  CHANGING OF THE GARDEN

A WORLD ABLOOM IN GOODNESS With the Rebbe’s outstanding, indefatigable optimism, he taught that all that transpires in the universe are expressions of G‑d’s beautiful “garden.” How can we dig beneath the surface and uncover that wellspring of goodness and virtue?  Gain insight into a different view of the world.


LESSON TWO:  BREWED TO PERFECTION

YOUR UNCONDITIONAL POTENTIAL Unconditional love. Acceptance of all people. How can we rise to the challenge and see neither failure nor weakness, but the internal core of perfection in every human being?  Gain insight into a different view of the human being.

 

LESSON THREE: AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POT

WHEN FAILURE INSPIRES FRUITION Imagine if past regretful choices could be used as a springboard to greater places! Learn how to reframe your views of personal negative history and empower yourself to thrive—not despite, but—because of it.  Gain insight into a different view of failure.


LESSON FOUR:  AN ETERNAL BLUEPRINT

BLENDING CELESTIAL SPIRIT AND MUNDANE MATTERS If you’re seeking the secret toward a harmonious life, it lies within the Torah’s instruction.

LESSON FIVE:  THE DAWNING OF AN ERA

THE ESSENCE OF THE FEMININE ROLE Why is the epoch of Redemption equated with the Feminine Era? Don’t both men and women have a part in bringing the world to this blissful state?

How do we take advantage of this extraordinary moment in history and energize ourselves for the sprint to the finish line?  Gain insight into a different view of contemporary events and trends.


LESSON SEVEN:  SERVED STRONG

BE A LEADER. CREATE LEADERS. What is ideal Jewish leadership? What makes an effective leader? What makes a Rebbe? The Rebbe never set out to create followers at all, but rather, to create leaders. How can we apply this successful paradigm to all areas of leadership?  Gain insight into a different view of leadership.
