Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing!

Beth El Synagogue joins hundreds of Jewish organizations across the country in offering teenage girls one of the most innovative and effective projects in the Jewish community. Rosh Hodesh: It’s A Girl Thing!, a program of Moving Traditions ( is a contemporary monthly celebration of the ancient New Moon holiday, Rosh Hodesh, that builds self-esteem, leadership skills and Jewish identity. The program brings together an intimate group of 6th grade girls for fun, inspiring and meaningful monthly gatherings.

Each It’s A Girl Thing gathering focuses on specific “life lessons” that draw on core Jewish values and practices to explore such issues as body image, friendship, family, assertiveness and social action. The girls love each month’s activities, including arts and crafts, creative writing, role-playing and small group discussions.
