Moving Traditions’ Teen Groups — Rosh Hodesh, Shevet, and Tzelem — are transformative communities where youth explore who they are through Jewish and gender lenses, together with a trained mentor using a dynamic curriculum.

Through monthly meetings throughout the year, these teen groups create circles of support that embolden youth to thrive. Group discussions and activities are infused with Jewish values and wisdom made relevant today, guided by social-emotional learning and positive psychology—proven methods of learning that foster well-being. Teens discuss issues that impact their daily lives, such as stress, academic pressure, friendships, intimate relationships and societal issues.

*All of these teen groups are safe and inclusive spaces for youth to join as they self-identify. Nonbinary teens are welcome in whatever space they feel most comfortable.
