Blessings for the Month of Adar!

Each month will feature original writings and intentions from Rabbi Sarah based on Jewish wisdom and the Jewish calendar, which coincide with the moon cycle and the seasons. The new moon and new month of Adar II (it's a leap year this year in the Jewish calendar which means we have 2 month of Adar) begins Wednesday March 6, 2019 at night. Each month is an opportunity for reflections, taking stock, checking in, and learning. Each month contains deep yet simple wisdom. Read more about the holidays, teachings, and intentions for the season on Rabbi Sarah's blog page called Writings.
