Rosh Hodesh: Grades 6-9
Rosh Hodesh, a partner program with Moving Traditions, helps teach girls the power of community and the ability of Jewish wisdom and practice to foster personal expression and to inspire all people to work for a more just and inclusive world. Through discussion, arts and crafts, creative ritual, games and drama, the girls and their leaders draw on Jewish values to explore issues such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, competition and stress. Meets monthly.
