The holiday of Rosh Chodesh dates back to biblical times. Its celebration and significance is related to the new moon and the cyclical nature of the seasons. Since the 1970s, women have associated with Rosh Chodesh in order to celebrate, study and learn about women’s roles and voices within Judaism as well as serving to enhance knowledge and spirituality.
The Rosh Chodesh Group at The Reform Temple of Forest Hills was formed in 1998 and has grown into a community of women who meet regularly to participate in a member created service, a study session led by a member or guest speaker, and a sharing session which allows us to express our viewpoints and share in common.
The Telsey Brunch and Lecture Series
Honoring Daubert & Jacqueline Telsey
Dr. Daubert Telsey had a vision. He believed it necessary to expand the horizons of our congregation. He felt that this could be accomplished through high quality, innovative, and intellectually challenging adult education programming. Dr. Telsey was a leader, innovator, and pioneer, not only within his specialty field of orthodontics, but also within our congregation. He graced us with leadership at a critical time in the Temple’s history and was a devoted, skillful, and beloved congregational president who managed to be a creative, healing, cohesive force.
Our immortality lies in the ideas and visions which we inspire. We are deeply grateful to Jacqueline Telsey, Daubert’s wife, who initiated this memorial lecture and saw it through eleven years of excellence. We, as a congregation, are honored to continue this memorial lecture series.
