Moving Traditions offers national online groups for transgender, nonbinary, gender diverse, and gender questioning Jewish teens in partnership with Keshet. The groups, led by a trans or nonbinary 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 October and meet monthly through May. We offer a sliding scale based on need to ensure that all teens who to join are able (full cost is $200, but when registering, there are multiple sliding scale fee options to choose from). No teen will be turned away based on ability to pay.
The first meeting will take place October 24, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. CT.Register Now
