As our daily newspapers fill with stories about tragic rates of teen anxiety and persistent sadness, Moving Traditions’ work emboldening teens to thrive has never been so important.

Join Moving Traditions’ Rabbi Daniel Brenner in conversation with Dr. Lisa Miller, author of The Awakened Brain and The Spiritual Child on May 22, as we observe Mental Health Awareness Month.

The science is clear. Data shows that teens who have a positive, active relationship with spirituality (like practicing Judaism in ways that are relevant and meaningful) are 60% less likely to be depressed. Spiritual teens have significantly more positive markers for thriving, including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success.

We will dig into the latest data around teen mental health and wellbeing, the neuroscience behind spirituality, and share practical
strategies to help the teens in your life to thrive.

Register now to join the conversation! The first 100 people who register and attend will receive a free copy of Dr. Lisa Miller’s latest book.

Raising Up Jewish Teens with Moving Traditions is a series of free webinars geared toward parents, educators, and all those who
guide Jewish preteens and teens. All are welcome.
