Nishmah – Programs for Girls

Nishmah offers a continuum of quality Jewish programs for girls in 1st-12th grade. Girls from diverse backgrounds come together to learn from each other and experience the world through a Jewish lens.

For more detailed information, visit the full Nishmah Programs for Girls page.


Nishmah Teen Banot Board

A leadership development program for girls in 9th – 12th grade. Girls will make new friends while getting to know younger girls in grades 2-4. Use your creativity and talents to create exciting programs for others. As a Banot Board member, you can participate in Nishmah’s Banot Buddies program by becoming a “buddy” to younger girls.

Banot Buddies

This mentoring program pairs younger girls with Nishmah Teen Banot Board to explore girls’ (2nd – 4th grade) topics through a Jewish lens. The program focuses on a particular area that is relevant to modern “girlhood.” The older girls serve as mentors as they encourage younger girls to find healthy ways of navigating girlhood. The relationships between both groups support the fostering of leadership skills, self-esteem, and a lifelong connection to Jewish ideals.

Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing

Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! is a national program of Moving Traditions that challenges Jewish girls to think critically about the world while enriching their Jewish identities through the connection of Jewish tradition to relevant issues facing them today. For girls in grades 5, 6, 7 & 8 to meet new friends in a fun, creative and interactive Jewish space.

Rosh Hodesh at B’nai Amoona

Nishmah is also partnering with Congregation B’nai Amoona on a brand new Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! group for 5th and 6th-grade girls hosted at B’nai Amoona.
