Join Moving Traditions for an honest, one-hour conversation about how parents and teens can keep talking even as we may find ourselves with very different sources of information, peer groups, and possible responses to the ongoing war.

Our CEO, Shuli Karkowsky, will sit down with Rabbi Daniel Brenner and a panel of experts to talk about:

  • The psychology behind how teens process the news
  • Strategies to foster discussion when you agree and when you don’t
  • How to set boundaries for discourse and root those boundaries in love

An intense period like the one we are living through can be a time for parents and teens to listen to one another or to shut each other out. Teens use moments like these both to differentiate themselves from their parent(s) and to integrate values from their peers with values from their parents. Parents, going through their own process of integrating the news of the past weeks, may find that they want to share in a deeper way than they could with younger children what has influenced their Jewish identities and global perspectives. Teens may or may not express any interest.

Moving Traditions is focused on supporting Jewish teens and the adults who guide them. Our work supporting teens in developing proud Jewish identities has never been more important. In this webinar, we will offer expert advice and resources to help you navigate this moment with the teen in your life. Our focus will be on strengthening familial relationships in the midst of disagreements, listening to teens while sharing your own values and experiences, and the keys to promoting healthy dialogue while talking about high-stakes issues like Israel.
