Tzelem for LGBTQ+ teens in LA

Moving Traditions and JQ International’s Teen JQSA are excited to partner and bring you Tzelem for LGBTQ+ Jewish teens.

Moving Traditions is a national organization that emboldens teens to flourish by fostering self-discovery, challenging sexism, and inspiring a commitment to Jewish life and learning. This group of 8th – 12th grade teens will gather each month to learn, grow, and bond together throughout the school year.

Tzelem program offers a safe, supportive space to make new friends and explore issues like:

  • Life transitions
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Challenging sexism
  • Body Positivity
  • Self-Compassion
  • Mental Health
  • Jewish Identity
  • And much more!

For those who are familiar with Rosh Hodesh and Shevet, the Tzelem group will incorporate the best of those programs, infusing special content created specifically for LGBTQ+ Jewish teens.

Meetings will take place on ONLINE via Zoom until further notice, then they will meet at JQ’s headquarters in West Hollywood. (801 Larrabee St. West Hollywood, CA 90069) The first group meeting is Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. PST.

Official dates and/or times will be announced soon, and are subjected to change.
