Moving Traditions’ signature programs, Rosh Hodesh (for girls) and Shevet Achim (for guys), have reached 19,000 teens across North America since the organization was founded in 2005. Programs create experiences that inspire Jewish teens to openly explore fundamental questions of identity and society —in small groups with peers in the same grade and a trusted adult mentor — and provide place for participants to feel safe, articulate their deepest concerns, consider the impact of gender on their daily lives, have fun and be “real” with their peers.
