Rosh Chodesh Kislev, 5778, Just One More Week!

Considering the clear blue skies of late and the almost zero humidity, it's hard to believe that the winter month of Kislev is just a week away. The dainty scattering of clouds are more suitable for Succot or just after. Gd willing the rains will begin to fall in blessed quantities. That's something extra to pray for when we gather next Sunday at Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh, for our Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers.
