Halachos and Laws of Rosh Chodesh

by Rabbi Yosef Shusterman

These classes discuss the customs and laws of Rosh Chosesh, the Jewish new month. Men are allowed to work on Rosh Chodesh. The women have a custom of not doing certain types of work. When the men sinned with the golden calf Rosh Chodesh was taken away from the men and given to the women as the women didn't win with the golden calf. There are 12 months in the year corresponding to the 12 tribes.
