Traditions, we believe that when Judaism promotes self-discovery, challenges
traditional gender roles, and celebrates a diversity of voices, it has the
power to move our teens, our communities, and Judaism forward.
Through our field-tested signature programs Rosh Hodesh and Shevet Achim, Moving Traditions creates experiences that inspire Jewish teens to openly explore fundamental questions of identity and society. We help teens reach their full potential by connecting relevant content with enduring Jewish values, and by fostering positive peer-to-peer relationships through our trained mentors.
Together, with the guidance of Moving Traditions, more Jewish teens are growing into adulthood with confidence, compassion and a lifelong commitment to Jewish community.
For the 10th year, Moving Traditions has been chosen for the Slingshot resource guide for Jewish innovation—and for Slingshot’s third and final women and girls supplement—for helping more teens “grow into adulthood with confidence, a sense of community, and an enduring commitment to being part of the Jewish community, however they identify themselves.”
