Training

Moving Traditions’ trainings for educators, clergy, and mentors who work with youth are practical, fun, and inspiring.

Practical: Our trainings provide participants with clear guidance and field-tested curricular resources that help them to structure successful, ongoing youth-focused educational experiences. Participants learn how to engage diverse learners in group settings and how to connect the life experiences of preteens and teens to Jewish values, texts, and rituals.

Fun: Engaging in play and awakening creativity are core to successful informal Jewish education with youth, and all the trainings that we offer provide a wide range of pedagogical modalities to engage hearts, bodies, and minds in the learning process.

Inspiring: Participants come away from Moving Traditions trainings having explored multiple perspectives on the journey of adolescence, including engaging with questions about social and gender codes that deepen their personal understanding of the mentor-student relationship. They leave feeling inspired to learn from teens and energized by the ways that the Jewish community can create spaces where youth can thrive.

“Learning how Jewish values map onto the goals of social-emotional learning is so exciting. I appreciate Moving Tradition’s whole approach to working with preteens and teens. This training gave a clear picture of how we can meet the needs of today’s teens and increase communication between them and their parents, all in a Jewish way.” – Trained Educator
