Rosh Hodesh - It's a Girl Thing

Led by Sara Stock Mayo, Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing- uses Jewish teachings and practices 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 to explore issues the girls care about most, such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, competition, and stress.

Open to girls in grades 7-11.

An invitation from Sara:

I hope you had an amazing
summer! I am writing to
introduce myself and tell you a
bit about Rosh Hodesh, It’s a
Girl Thing, a group for girls that
meets once a month to talk, have
fun, discuss life and create
community amongst Jewish
pre-teen girls. Rosh Hodesh,
It’s a Girl Thing will help girls:
explore their evolving identity,
build self-esteem, increase
Jewish identity, develop leadership skills,
have a place to discuss their journey to
womanhood through an ethical and spiritual lens of Judaism. I am currently Cantorial Soloist at three Pittsburgh area congregations and have recently begun a monthly chavurah (friends) service in people’s homes and public spaces. I have a background in working with students of all ages teaching Jewish studies and skills, drama and singing and leading worship. In addition, I am Managing Director of Pittsburgh Playback Theatre–a group dedicated to telling stories and honoring experiences. I bring my diverse background to working in the Pittsburgh Jewish community, of which I have served for the past 14 years. I am really excited to lead this group, which will meet at the JCC as part of The Second Floor teen program starting in September. I invite students and parents to join me.

Looking forward to seeing you there and to starting this exciting program with you and your friends,
Rosh Hodesh Sara
