Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing! and You

  1. Supply rich and award-winning curriculum:
    • Sourcebooks for Group Leaders, up to five years of monthly plans:
      • Lev: The first year of Rosh Hodesh is devoted to nurturing individual identity, as girls begin the journey to discover friendships, self-worth, positive thinking and heritage.
      • Ruach: Girls are encouraged to develop their unique spirit, as they experience lessons about kindness, forgiveness, friendship, sharing and standing up for themselves.
      • Kol: As the leadership stage begins, girls use their voices for positive change, while also learning to set goals, garner self-esteem—and truly be heard.
      • Bena: A year devoted to leadership through fostering knowledge, mastering group dynamics, taking responsibility and gaining deeper insight.
      • Koach: Girls prepare to lead their own groups, plan and execute an important final project and conduct critical self-assessments. They have gelled as a group but have also learned invaluable lessons about themselves as remarkable, empowered individuals.

  2. Provide consultation and ongoing support to Group Leaders and Supervisors
    • Manual for Group Leaders, which provides an array of helpful resources
    • Manual for Supervisors, a guide to running the program at your institution
    • Website with resources for group leaders and supervisors that includes templates, best practices gathered from experienced group leaders, PR material and other useful tools
