Chodesh Chai Videos

Chodesh Chai is a Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) project brought to you by Lauren Fries, Amanda Nube and Ariela Sharon. By studying astrology, herbalism, somatics and Jewish text, we create informative videos and materials about the months connecting them to the body, the earth and to our faith.
