Our Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing group the past two years has brought girls together and enabled them to empower themselves to be individuals with strong Jewish values and identities. We have discussed the many different facets of their ages group in regards to social development, health and peer pressure. All of this we tie into their Judaism. Friendships have been made and nourished. This values based group is an activity that the girls will remember and learn from for many years.

I am executive director of a Jewish outreach organization that serves primarily Jews and their loved ones who are not connected with the organized Jewish community. We have just started our first Rosh Hodesh - It's a Girl Thing! program this fall. The training and support by staff and the curriculum materials are outstanding, and helped us feel very confident that we could be successful with the program. Recruiting was easy, our first group is excited about participating. We plan to keep RH - IaGT! an important part of our offerings.

From the moment I was trained as an educator for Moving Tradtitions-Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing, I knew this was it! Just last Tuesday, at my first Rosh Hodesh meeting of the year, I said to my girls/participants "I WISH this existed when I was your age"!! I do believe the girls understand and agree. There's no hiding how available these young ladies become to themselves and each other through this amazing program. There's certainly noway of denying its lasting impact on each and every participant when you hear each fall what the girls missed about Rosh Hodesh during the summer months. They're connection to each participant and their knew found connection to themselves is ever lasting and miraculous. We're all so incredibly lucky to be part of a project like this!!

reach every Jewish community and every Jewish teenager. They could have even more resources, visuals, speakers and field trips. Perhaps they could reach out to different Jewish communities across the world not just in the U.S.

I am group leader for Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing. My girls (grades 6 and 7) love being a part of this group. It is so wonderful for them to feel like a part of something at this, sometimes difficult stage, in their adolescent lives. When the girls come to my home we talk, we eat, and discuss important issues that they face today, while relating themes back to biblical times. The girls feel so comfortable knowing they can come and talk and just be themselves, without any feeling of being judged. I wish I had this opportunity when I was 12 years old!

As Director of Education at a Jewish complimentary school I have options for many programs for my students. Rosh Hodesh is a wonderful program that has helped our girls bond in a way that no other program has done as well as connecting them Jewishly to a world that is meaningful for them. This is an incredibly well done program. Bravo for Moving Traditions!!!

A Moving Traditions regional supervisor asked me to start a Rosh Hodesh group for girls---two years ago. Moving Traditions was extremely helpful in working with us to train our Rosh Hodesh group leader as well as to help us with details in getting the group up and running. Our Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing group has made a huge difference for our girls in the group.

The Great!

One of the best Jewish organizations, Moving Traditions finds ways to help educate girls and boys in new and unique ways. They educate the whole person, not just academically but are committed to helping adolescents with self-esteem, friendship and becoming strong and ethical people. I am a Rosh Hodesh: It's a girl thing leader and love it more than any of my other experiences working with teens in the Jewish community.

I have been facilitating a Rosh Chodesh group annually now for almost 8 years with new girls coming into the program every 2 years. I was asked to participate as a facilitator in the program when it was just beginning and have seen the impact it has made in the spiritual lives of Jewish girls who have many questions and concerns as they navigate the psychological perils and secularisms of modern life. I too have experienced so much joy from being involved in the Moving Traditions Rosh Chodesh program. I have become more spiritually aware of time, cycles, and honoring that which is most "awe"some in the experience of being a woman. I believe that sharing traditions with young teen girls has enhanced my own life deeply. As I work with Moving Traditions, I have often known that I am not alone in helping to guide my group. There is always a willing and able person to guide the transitions of groups behind the scenes. I have had wonderful mentorship in the program from the very beginning.

always supportive and highly communicative about being sure we were prepared as leaders, had new information and resources at hand, and were generally cheering from the sidelines.
