We’re rooted in ancient Jewish wisdom and rituals in a way that welcomes you, whether or not you identify as Jewish. We have a deep love for Rosh Chodesh, the start of each new Hebrew month, and use this to ground the rest of our work.
Each new moon invites us to tap into the spiritual energy of the month ahead. To facilitate this, we publish monthly Moon Manuals, a compilation of inspiring activities and meditations, to help you slow down and make space for reflection.
We celebrate Rosh Chodesh by coming together around each new moon, giving each of us space to connect, learn, and be heard. These monthly gatherings, which we call Well Circles, are a powerful path to wholeness.
To enhance women’s well-being through ancient Jewish practices.
We envision a world where all women are connected to their bodies, spiritual practices, and community.
At The Well works to inspire women to empower themselves, live whole lives, and lift each other up.
Media coverage of At The Well
Barrie Rein Thunemann was a spiritual seeker for decades, looking for a deep Jewish spirituality guided by socially liberal ethics. It took the pandemic for her to find it.
Sarah Waxman likes to talk about her “Queen Esther moment,” when she realized her calling while planning a Purim party: making Judaism’s healing rituals for women more accessible. “Mordechai tells Esther that she was born for this moment,” Waxman said. “It sparked something in me. This is something I can do. Judaism is a strategy for wholeness.”
More than a year into a devastating pandemic and multiple crises, Jewish communities continue to demonstrate resilience, strength, and togetherness that have resulted in powerful moments and experiences of connection, meaning, and purpose.
A conversation about Rosh Chodesh (the Jewish practice of marking a new month), its relationship to women's spirituality, and At The Well's work to empower women in experiencing this sacred monthly moment with one another.
