Teen years 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.

That’s where Rosh Hodesh and Shevet come in. The SJCC 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, we create a small, safe group experience within our community and inspire teens to openly explore the fundamental questions of identity and society. The groups meet twice a month 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.

Spots will be capped at 15 teens in each group and are first-come, first-serve.  There will be two groups: one for 8th- and 9th-grade girls and one for 8th-grade boys. For more information, contact Stephanie Aaronson, Community Development Manager.
