Women’s Temple Dedication Ceremony with Roseanne Barr and Holly Taya Shere
January 24, 2012 @ the Kamuela Museum on the Big Island of Hawaii

On the new moon of Rosh Hodesh Shvat, the Kameula Museum will be dedicated as a Women’s Temple for transformation and tikkun olam (healing  the world) across traditions.  Sages teach that this day, the new moon of Shvat is comparable to the day of the giving of the Torah.  Join us as we reclaim, invoke and celebrate the wisdom of women world-wide, and co-create ceremonial space.  Bring your unique gifts, energy and power to this sacred circle.   Donations (canned food, art, money, etc) requested.  More details provided upon RSVP (including timing, items to bring for dedication, etc).  RSVP
