In Hebrew, Rosh Chodesh means, literally, “head of the month” or “first of the month.” Rosh Chodesh is the first day of any new month.
“And G‑d said to Moses… in the land of Egypt… This month is for you, the head of the months. First it is for you among the months of the year.” (Exodus 12:1-2).
The Torah commands us to sanctify each month at its start. The Jewish month begins when the new moon first appears, a tiny sliver in the night sky.
The moon’s cycle of waxing and waning is a powerful symbol of renewal, reminding us that every diminution creates the possibility of rebirth. Rosh Chodesh offers us the opportunity to begin anew, not just once a year, but once a month.
