Did you know that each Jewish month—marked by the new moon—has its own mythology, including Zodiac sign, special color and sensory input? New Moon Gather is a chance to celebrate the new month in a welcoming context, rich with learning and music.
At a private residence in Palo Alto, we will first read texts. Then Jewlia Eisenberg and Jeremiah Lockwood, known as Book of J, will teach and perform songs based on the themes of the month. We will close with a group ritual outside under the dark sky. A great way to bring in the new month with joy and intention!
Eisenberg is a vocalist, recording artist, ethnomusicologist and founder of the Balkan funk-punk band Charming Hostess. Lockwood's band The Sway Machinery mixes 200-year-old cantorial melodies with Afro-pop horn parts and subway blues.
This three-part series takes place in a beautiful space at a private residence in Palo Alto. Tea and light refreshments will be served.
