In September of 2014, as the High Holidays approached, we at Moving Traditions began thinking about our intentions for the coming Jewish year. What we’re working on as an organization, and as people, and what our groups will be focusing on this year.

Intentions are good, but the best thing you can do is share your intentions with others so they know what they’re going for, and so they can help you along the way, because we all know sticking with our intentions can be really tough.

With that in mind, we launched the #intentions5775 campaign. We asked teens to tell us their Moving Traditions-inspired intentions for the coming year. Here are some of the many photos we received:


celebrate shabbat more
appreciate the little moments
people i love know it
stop doubting myself
step back from bad environment
stay self harm free recovery
celebrate shabbat every week
say yes to out of comfort zone
lots of intentions
not be afraid to speak
smile proudly
treat people the way you want to be treated
always try my hardest
fruit loop in a bowl of cheerios
take pride in being me
respect my schoolwork and be more responsible
be proud of myself and my work
be who i am not who i want to be
study more than texting
glass half full
be proud of who we are
