Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! “Taste Of” Event

BJTI and Moving Traditions have teamed up for this unique event where upcoming 8th and 9th grade teenage girls and their mothers can have some “girl time”, meet new friends, and dig into some sample topics and activities that the Rosh Hodesh group will be engaging in this year.

BJTI LogoRosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! is an experiential education program currently touching the lives of 3,500 girls across North America. 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.

*Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! will meet once a month with facilitator Amy Atkins at a designated location, date and time agreed upon by the group.

When: September 9th @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Boulder JCC
