In order to reverse the loss of Jewish boys after bar mitzvah, Moving Traditions has just released the comprehensive report, Engaging Jewish Teenage Boys: A Call to Action, offering Seven Lessons and Seven Principles to help Jewish educators, funders and parents more effectively reach teenage boys. The report is distilled from three years of research, 40 focus groups with Jewish boys, and program development, and grows out of the success of Moving Traditions' work with adolescent girls through Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing!

Rosh Hodesh: It’s a Girl Thing! is the first proactive, informal education program that uses Judaism to enrich the lives of girls. It draws on Jewish tradition to give girls a place to feel safe, articulate their questions and concerns, have fun, and be ‘real’ with their peers. Small groups of girls meet monthly with a carefully trained adult leader who uses a step-by-step manual. Through discussion, arts & crafts and drama, the girls integrate core Jewish values as they focus on the things they care about most, such as body image, friendship, relationships, competition, stress and family.
