Rosh Chodesh Elul Retreat on Zoom Sunday August 8th

Join Malkhut for an online Rosh Chodesh Elul retreat to prepare our hearts for the Days of Awe. On Sunday August 8th as the month of Elul begins, we will gather for an afternoon of meditation, chanting, prayer, mindful movement, journaling, and community. The practices and activities we engage in together will help us to set our intentions for the month of Elul, traditionally a time of intensive preparation for the High Holy Days. The retreat will be led by Emily Herzlin, and we will close with a special ritual to welcome the month of Elul, led by the Malkhut Rosh Chodesh group. Click HERE for details and to sign up.
