Middle school can be a challenging time. It’s when teens are asking life’s big questions, like who they want to be and become. It’s a time when friendship and mentorship are needed most, and when the values and support of Jewish community can be a positive, guiding force.
The Stroum JCC is partnering with Moving Traditions, a national nonprofit that emboldens teens by fostering self-discovery, challenging sexism, and inspiring a commitment to Jewish life and learning. Together with Moving Traditions, we’re creating a small, safe group experience within our community and inspiring teens to openly explore the fundamental questions of identity and society. The Rosh Hodesh group for girls meets monthly and, through the guidance of a trained mentor, connect relevant teen content with enduring Jewish values—all while encouraging a good time and fostering new friendships. Together, with the guidance of Moving Traditions, more Jewish teens are growing into adulthood with confidence, compassion and a lifelong commitment to Jewish community.
