Rosh Hodesh: it’s a girl thing!

Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! is an informal and experiential education program developed by Moving Traditions that uses Judaism to enrich the lives of girls. Based on the Jewish tradition of women’s New Moon celebrations, the program builds the self-esteem, Jewish identity, leadership skills, and friendship networks of adolescent girls.

Rosh Hodesh groups meet monthly, providing a supportive environment where girls can explore the social and cultural issues they encounter—and derive their own authentic Jewish values in response to the challenges they face—while having fun. Through discussion, arts & crafts, creative ritual, and activities, the girls and their leaders draw on Judaism and a gender lens to explore the things girls care about most, such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, school, competition, and stress.
