Discover Moving Traditions’ groups for teens!

Looking for a way for your teen to…

  • Connect with other Jewish teens AND experience Judaism as relevant to their life?
  • Have a safe and sacred space to explore fundamental questions of identity and society and to challenge traditional gender codes and expectations?
  • Move through their adolescence feeling empowered, growing into happy, healthy adults?

In Moving Traditions Community Groups, participants experience our signature programs, Rosh Hodesh for girls, Shevet for guys, and Tzelem for gender non-conforming youth, in gatherings made up of 8–12 teens in 8th-12th grade. The groups meet twice per month for one hour via Zoom or once per month for two hours in person during the academic year. These safe, fun, and supportive spaces aim to engage participants in meaningful conversations, activities, and games facilitated by a trained adult. Click here to learn more about our teen groups.

I am the parent of 3 boys and our household is busy with a lot of competing activities, both Jewish and not. Shevet has been an incredibly worthwhile experience for my 8th grade son. He has furthered meaningful friendships, been exposed to thought provoking ideas, learned concrete relationship skills, and always has always come home from these few short hours with a smile on his face and only good things to say about the time spent with his Shevet friends.
