Moving Traditions’ programs, Rosh Hodesh and Shevet Achim draw on Jewish wisdom and gender analysis to help teens think critically about social norms and challenge narrowly defined stereotypes.

Teens feel pressure to conform to gender expectations in middle and high school in nearly every aspect of their lives: friendship and family, romance and sexuality, beauty and health, money and power, and academic stress. In addition, teens navigate being a “Jewish girl” or “Jewish guy” in a multicultural and interfaith world.

When we connect Jewish ethics to deeply personal struggles in the lives of Jewish girls and boys, they not only experience Judaism as relevant and meaningful, they also see Jewish community as a vehicle for social change.
