Moving Traditions
October 27, 2009

I think that Rosh Hodesh, a program that's under the umbrella of Moving Traditions is one of the most effective and creative Jewish Education tools that I've seen in years. Especially in smaller communities it brings Jewish Teens together in a meaningful and supportive way (often Rosh Hodesh is the only Jewish Experience these teens have). I have seen groups of teen girls become so comfortable to share with one another, and all within a Jewish lens...I LOVE Rosh Hodesh and am so grateful for Moving Traditions for giving it a life!!!
