Together, we can help Jewish youth thrive
Engaging Jewish youth since 2005
Moving Traditions emboldens Jewish youth to thrive through the pursuit of personal wellbeing (shleimut), caring relationships (hesed), and a Jewish and feminist vision of equity and justice (tzedek). Combining positive psychology with Jewish values, we partner with Jewish institutions across North America to engage Jewish teens, families, and communities.
What We Do
Moving Traditions’ innovative programs provide safe spaces for youth to connect and grow, providing a circle of support for Jewish teens.
A framework for preteen family education, for 5th-7th graders and their parents to explore what it means to become and a parent a teen
Transformative communities where youth explore who they are through Jewish and gender lenses, together with a trained mentor using a dynamic curriculum
A plug-and-play curriculum for educators to use in Hebrew High Schools where teens explore themselves, their relationships, and their communities
A fellowship for 10th-12th grade teens to gain confidence, build community, and develop agency as Jewish feminist changemakers
A new opportunity for Jewish teens to prepare for bold leadership and activism on college campuses, in social justice spaces, and wherever else their passions take them
Training for staff who work with Jewish youth at camp and elsewhere about how to navigate gender, healthy boundaries, and more
