Prepare your students for Rosh Chodesh with this handout featuring the full Hebrew text of Birkas Hachodesh. This prayer announcing the new month is recited in synagogue on the Shabbos before each Rosh Chodesh. Framing the text of Birkas Hachodesh are 12 pictures representing each month of the Hebrew calendar. Have students color the picture representing the upcoming new month and fill in the blank lines provided with the name of the new month and the day or days Rosh Chodesh will fall on during the coming week. 

Use this handout to familiarize students with this significant tefillah and as a springboard for discussing their hopes and goals for the coming month. Included is a handout reminding students to wear a white shirt to school on the day or days of Rosh Chodesh.
