Rosh Hodesh & Achim

 

Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing!

Rosh Hodesh (New Month): it's a girl thing! is a values-based and experiential Jewish program for young girls that strengthens self-esteem and Jewish identity. Rosh Hodesh meets girls where they are and draws on Jewish teachings and traditions to keep girls healthy and whole—despite the aspects of popular culture that encourage risky behaviors.

TUESDAY NIGHT ROSH HODESH GROUPS
Temple Isaiah will be offering Rosh Hodesh for all 8th-12th grade girls during Tichon Isaiah. We will meet on the first Tuesday of every month at the Temple 6:00pm-8:00pm. These monthly sessions,which will take place in lieu of regular classes, will offer a supportive environment where girls can explore the social and cultural issues they
encounter—and derive their own authentic Jewish values in response to the challenges they face—while having fun.


Achim: It’s a Guy Thing!

Achim (Brotherhood) is a program for 8th and 9th grade boys aimed at helping them to navigate the issues of masculinity in their lives and give them Jewish guidance, both spiritual and ethical, regarding what it means to be a mensch. More specifically the program will offer boys enjoyable activities while creating a safe space and enable boys to engage in meaningful discussion.

TUESDAY NIGHT ACHIM GROUPS
