The Complex Inner World of Today’s Teens in a #MeToo World
A dynamic and informative session for parents on the joys and challenges of raising healthy Jewish teens in a #metoo world. Moving Traditions’ California Director Alisha Pedowitz will explore with parents the major pressures facing Jewish teens today — including sexuality, anxiety, conflict with authority, social media, and more — and how the Jewish community can help support our teens.
Getting Real with #MeToo
An interactive workshop for Jewish teens, ages 14-18, to explore what it means to be a teen today in a #metoo world. This gender separate session for teen girls and guys, led by master educators Reut Sklar and Rabbi Yechiel Hoffman, respectively, will examine the stress, pressures, and confusing messages about gender and sexuality in 2018. It’s a lot and it can get in the way of leading a healthy and happy life. Don’t let it. Join us for an honest conversation with peers.
Jewish Wisdom & Wellness is co-sponsored by the Hebrew Union College-JIR Kalsman Institute and Cedars-Sinai.
