Sex, flirting, and romance are of central importance to teens—and, even in this time of social distancing, teens still need their parents’ guidance to navigate this important aspect of their lives.
Please join Moving Traditions’ CEO Deborah Meyer along with Moving Traditions staff and Kol Koleinu Teen Fellows—as we speak with Jennifer S. Hirsch and Shamus Kahn, coauthors of the landmark study, Sexual Citizens, who will share their research findings and discuss implications for teens and their parents.

Hirsch, Khan, and their colleague Claude Ann Mellins’ groundbreaking research on sex, power, and assault at Columbia University and Barnard College has been featured in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and other leading national publications.
The coauthors are seeking to transform the way our society responds to the public health crisis of sexual assault on campus by looking at its social roots, and by providing a road map that will lead to healthy and mindful sexual interactions.
They do not offer a silver bullet solution. Rather, they propose an impressive set of transformative concepts that align with the Jewish-values laden, healthy sexuality curriculum that teens experience in Moving Traditions Teen Groups—Rosh Hodesh for girls, Shevet for boys and Tzelem for trans and nonbinary teens—and which we are keen to bring to parents and educators of Jewish youth.
