Hoffen feels, " this is a wonderful opportunity for women to set aside a specific time to study, learn, and grow spiritually." The sessionwill last about one and a half hours and include prayer, study, song, candle lighting, conversation, and refreshments in a spiritual at- mosphere comfortable to each woman regardless of her de- gree of religious observance or knowledge. Reservations are not neces- sary, you don't have to know Hebrew, and there is no charge Hodesh to attend.
