Rosh Chodesh: It’s a Girl Thing!

Rosh ChodeshRosh Chodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! The program uses Jewish teachings and practices — in a five-year cycle of curricular materials — to give girls a place to feel safe, articulate their deepest concerns, consider the impact of gender on their daily lives, have fun, and be ‘real’ with their peers. Through discussion, arts & crafts, creative ritual, games, and drama, the girls and their leaders draw on Jewish values and a gender lens to explore the issues the girls care about    most, such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, competition, and stress.
