Ladies, please join us on Sunday, August 20th for a relaxed lunch and spiritually uplifting experience, as Cantor Edmondson helps us welcome the new month of Elul. This Rosh Chodesh experience, co-sponsored by the Temple Ritual Committee and Sisterhood, is open to all adult women in the congregation and will take place from noon until about 1:30PM. Each Rosh Chodesh experience will focus on different ideas and have different activities, and in this one we'll embrace the month that is traditionally a month of reflection as we head into the High Holy Days. We'll get to know each other with a guided meditation, study, and self-reflection on this Sunday afternoon. Please come and see what this relaxing and rewarding experience is all about!  RSVP is a MUST to admin@templesanjose.org BY FRIDAY AT NOON, AUGUST 18TH.
