JumpSpark Brings Moving Traditions to Atlanta

While a majority of Jewish teens will become b’nai mitzvah, many drop out of Jewish life soon after, leaving the Jewish community just when they’re figuring out who they are. To bridge that gap and not lose teens on their Jewish journey, JumpSpark is partnering with area synagogues and Jewish organizations to launch Moving Traditions teen groups and incorporate educational curriculum into existing programs throughout the city this school year. 

Moving Traditions connects the issues teens care about most – from body image, friendship, social and academic pressure, romance, and sexuality, to enduring Jewish values. The content fosters positive peer-to-peer relationships with trained educators and mentors, and inspires an ongoing connection to Jewish community.

Shevet, for teen boys in grades 8-12, reimagines the transition from boy to young man and gives teen boys a safe space to explore masculinity, friendship, and sense of purpose that Judaism has to offer. A B’nai Mitzvah program helps 6th and 7th graders and their parents develop strong communication and empathy as they prepare to become and parent a teen. Learn more about the programs and how to enroll your teen at an info session with Moving Traditions leadership and JumpSpark on Wednesday, October 30th.
