Tzelem B-Mitzvah Family Education

Becoming a teen is hard for preteens and for their parents, especially today, with current realities heightening the transition to this new stage of life. To support families when they most need support and while they are engaged in Jewish life, leading up to the b-mitzvah, we seek to make Jewish family education at adolescence as commonplace as it is for preschoolers.

Moving Traditions’ approach to preteen Jewish family education inspires connection to Jewish community by centering on human development and the parent-child relationship.

Moving Traditions is at the forefront with the Moving Traditions B-Mitzvah Family Education Program, building the growing field. Our B–Mitzvah program enables clergy and Jewish educators in more than 110 communities to help preteens and families navigate this life stage by addressing the joys and challenges of becoming and parenting a teen.
