Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing!


Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! is a program that uses Jewish teachings to help pre-teen and teenage girls make healthy life choices. An informal setting, small group size, and carefully designed activities create a fun and meaningful experience, which strengthen their Jewish identity, leadership skills and self-esteem. All Jewish girls in 6th through 9th grades who live in Tucson and the surrounding area are welcome to participate.

The groups meet at Congregation Anshei Israel in the Linda Roy Youth Center four times a year on Sundays, 12:00-2:00pm. At our meetings, we talk about things such as friends, siblings and parents; we create art, do skits and yoga; cook, dance and eat; and hang out with other Jewish girls.  Teenage girls participating in RHIAGT! across the country love the fact that it's like their own special club. (Parents are not allowed at meetings.)

For more information about It's a Girl Thing! at Congregation Anshei Israel – how you as a Jewish girl, or your daughter or a friend, can become a part of this exciting program, contact Ori Parnaby or Rabbi Robert Eisen.

This program is sponsored by The Jake and Goldie Silverman Foundation and Congregation Anshei Israel.
