Rosh Hodesh is a values-based, experiential Jewish program for pre-teen and teenage girls in grades 8-10 that strengthens self-esteem and Jewish identity. CBS currently offers groups for 8th through 10th grade girls. It is the first Jewish program to pro-actively address two well-documented trends:

  • Many girls drop out of Jewish programming after Bat Mitzvah
  • Girls’ self-esteem plummets as they enter adolescence.

Rosh Hodesh draws on Jewish teachings and traditions to keep girls healthy and whole-despite the aspects of popular culture that may put them at risk.

Congregation Beth Shalom is proud to have trained leaders facilitating this program for our girls.
