Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing is a program from Moving Traditions to help empower the ladies in our community. Temple Beth Shalom currently has three Rosh Hodesh groups running in grade-specific cohorts. These groups meet once a month, and generally stick with the same group throughout their time in Rosh Hodesh. Curriculum combines Judaism with the struggles and excitement of being a girl in a fun, hands-on, age appropriate way. As groups grow, they facilitate lifelong friendships and a great foundation for phenomenal women.

Moving Traditions’ program Shevet Achim: The Brotherhood helps teen boys explore two primary questions: “What does it mean to be a man?” and “What does it mean to be a mensch?” The field-tested Shevet Achim curriculum we provide our partners with
connects Jewish ideas, stories, and ethics to the most challenging issues in the lives of teen boys:competition, aggression, power, academic stress, pursuit of pleasure, and risk-taking. Our method balances play with engaging debate in a safe environment that teen boys enjoy.
