Moving Traditions

Every month cohorts of 6-12 teens, divided by grade and gender, meet to engage in Moving Traditions.  Whether in someone's home or at Valley Beth Shalom, participants build positive relationships and think deeply about gender, cultural expectations, ethics and Jewish life.

Teen boys who participate in Shevet Achim: The Brotherhood enjoy spending time in a "guy space," where they can explore what masculinity and being Jewish means to them.  It offers an honest, relevant and cool way to participate in the Jewish community.
