On the first of every Hebrew month, on Rosh Chodesh, the fifth and sixth grade girls at Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy invite their mothers to join them for Shacharit. The girls lead prayers with their mother’s joining in, and then the entire group engages in a meaningful conversation that creates a spiritual connection between mother and daughter. 

On Rosh Chodesh Adar the program took a celebratory turn as sixth-grader Natalie Cohen marked her bat mitzvah by leading services. Those gathered—including her mother, Rachel Cohen, and her 33 classmates and their mothers—then joined her in her mitzvah project, crafting blankets to be donated to a shelter in Israel.
