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

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
