Our staff helps institutional partners start Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! groups for girls in your communities.

Our partners come from across the denominations and include synagogues, day schools, JCCs, and other Jewish institutions.

To join the program, each institutional partner pays a program fee to Rosh Hodesh, scaled to your budget and size. In return, you get advice; an in-depth manual with step-by-step guidance and 28 months of activities; and training and support for your group leaders.
