Rosh Hodesh and Moving Traditions
For centuries, the celebration of the new moon, Rosh Hodesh, has been a time when women gather to draw strength from being in community, learn, sing, and imagine a better world.
Moving Traditions nurtures the gatherings of thousands of adolescent girls in Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! groups across North America. These girls have watched from a distance as women in Israel have struggled to make a place for themselves to celebrate Rosh Hodesh in front of the Western Wall.
Teen boys in Moving Traditions’ program, Shevet Achim: The Brotherhood, also have seen the news footage and wondered how they can help.
Now that this struggle is in the headlines around the world, we owe it to the next generation to include them in this public discussion.
