Rosh Chodesh - It's a Girl's Thing

Adath Israel has two active Rosh Chodesh groups, one for ninth grade and one for eleventh grade girls.

Rosh Hodesh is an experiential education program currently touching the lives of 3,500 girls across North America. The program uses Jewish teachings and practices — in a five-year cycle of curricular materials — to give girls a place to feel safe, articulate their deepest concerns, consider the impact of gender on their daily lives, have fun, and be ‘real’ with their peers. Rosh Chodesh is part of Moving Traditions, a nationally recognized pioneer in Jewish education.

For more information about Rosh Chodesh, please contact Na'ama Yarden at 610-934-1912 or [email protected].

LMAHH - Lower Merion Area Hebrew High

The Lower Merion Area Hebrew High (LMAHH) was created to provide a weekly Jewish learning experience, bringing students from many synagogues (or no synagogue) together under one consolidated program. Joining together to create a positive social atmosphere for all students involved, we are also able to provide our students with a diversity of viewpoints from educators and rabbis across the Main Line and beyond. This program has been developed by the four Conservative synagogues in the area - Adath Israel, Congregation Beth Am IsraelTemple Beth Hillel-Beth El and Har Zion Temple - and is open to other interested congregations, as well as teens who are not currently members of a synagogue.
