Rosh Chodesh Tevet 5779-Festival of the Daughters Tehillim Campaign
In North African countries, the seventh night of Chanukah (1st of Tevet) was set aside as Chag haBanot, the Festival of the Daughters, when mothers would give their daughters gifts. Some say it was a celebration of Chana and/or of Judith that brought new light into their world with their courage and steadfast faith.
This Rosh Chodesh let us bless our daughters, sisters, mothers and our unborn girls with the strength to demand halachic prenups before marriage and halachic solutions to get refusal upon divorce.
The following twenty women are still in need of a get, and have asked for your prayers.
