Moving Traditions is now offering national online groups for Jewish teens who identify as transgender, nonbinary, gender fluid, or gender questioning in partnership with Keshet. The groups, led by a trans or non-binary group leader, bring together teens from all over the country once a month for two hours via video conference.
Each month the group will focus on topics like courage, friendship, stress, body image, spirituality. We will play games based on the topics, talk about them, explore some Jewish perspectives on them.
For those who are familiar with Rosh Hodesh and Shevet, the group will draw on the best of those programs, except it will be online and have special content for trans, nonbinary, gender fluid, and gender questioning teens.
Participants will get occasional fun packages in the mail with creative activities and supplies to use during the online sessions and to remind you of what you did together.
Groups will begin in September and meet monthly through May, and participation fees are $180 per teen. Scholarships are available — no one will be turned away.
Dates and times of meetings will be determined based upon group needs.I’m interested!
