Moving Traditions

Moving Traditions believes that when Judaism promotes self-discovery, challenges traditional gender roles and celebrates a diversity of voices, it has the power to move our teens, our communities and Judaism forward. Through its field-tested programs, Moving Traditions creates experiences that inspire Jewish teens to openly explore fundamental questions of identity and society.

Life As a Teenager Can Be Stressful!

Between school, enrichment classes, sports, family and friends, teens have little time to decompress. Rosh Chodesh and Shevet Achim offer an opportunity to bond with friends, explore issues that are pertinent to your life, and learn about yourself and each other.

In a safe and close knit group, participants will develop a support network that will nurture their soul as well as give them the tools to navigate the journey of growing up as a Jewish American teen. Rosh Chodesh and Shevet Achim are programs from Moving Traditions. To learn more about these programs, visit movingtraditions.org.
