Moving Traditions Info Session

Overview

While a majority of Jewish teens will become b’nai mitzvah, many drop out of Jewish life soon after, leaving the Jewish community at a critical stage when they’re just 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 new Moving Traditions teen groups, including Shevet for teen boys in grades 8-12 and B'nai Mitzvah programs to help 6th & 7th graders and their parents develop strong communication and empathy as they navigate this milestone.

Join Moving Traditions' Founder and CEO Deborah Meyer, Chief of Education Daniel Brenner, and JumpSpark Director Kelly Cohen for an informational session about the new programs coming to Atlanta in 2019 and to learn more about the impact they can have on your teen at this critical age.

Wine and cheese provided.

Stick around after the info session for Raising a Mensch: Parenting Teen Boys at 7 PM to get a taste of Shevet and learn how you can help your teen son navigate conflicting messages about masculinity, competition, sexuality, power, and menschlikeit.
