Rosh Chodesh, the celebration of the New Moon and new month, has been claimed as a women's holiday according to Jewish tradition. When the Israelites camped in the desert, out of fear they created the Golden Calf; but the women (we are taught) did not contribute their jewelry and valuables, so this reward of an additional hold day connects to our spiritual selves. In addition, women's cycles mimic lunar travels and this monthly holiday connects us to our physical selves. It has become a holiday of renewal, hitting the reset button, reclaiming the self in a world swirling with responsibilities and obligations.
