Do you believe in God?

Do you feel that God plays a role in your everyday life?

Would you like to build a more meaningful, authentic bond with the Creator?

Let's face it - it's easy to believe something in abstract — and much harder to feel it in our hearts. Many of us yearn for more... for deeper...

We often do the right thing, but feel disconnected from the ideas behind our practice. We talk about God, but don't always feel His presence in our world.

Imagine how much richer our experience would be with a vibrant, dynamic bond with God!

Imagine how joyful it would be to pray to God and truly feel heard!

Sounds like a story for mystics and ascetics?

This can be you. 
You can find a deep, authentic connection with God.

Let's do this together!

The Rosh Chodesh Society’s upcoming course, A Work of Heart, flings the cover off the Jewish prayer book, prayer services and the synagogue. This course exposes the beating heart of prayer.

A Work of Heart takes us on a journey of connection and bonding with God through prayer. You will learn to see prayer as an art and opportunity— a journey of self-discovery and exercise in self-empowerment.

Finding G‑d in Our World
