Podcast: What do Teens Need? Hear it from the Experts

By: 
Deborah Meyer and Rabbi Daniel Brenner

Hear about what teens need in addition to their parents’ love and support--a mentor, a safe place to express themselves, and messages from Jewish tradition that challenge the negative messages from pop culture.

Deborah Meyer is the Executive Director of Moving Traditions, a national organization that designs initiatives to help teenage girls and teenage boys figure out what it means to Jewish women and Jewish men. She has 25 years of experience building non-profits, primarily women's and Jewish organizations. In addition, for four years Deborah helped manage a private Jewish Montessori pre-school. Prior to founding Moving Traditions with Chair Sally Gottesman, Deborah co-directed Kolot, where she helped create and launch Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing! Deborah holds an M.A. in Communication from Emerson College. You can reach Deborah Meyer at dmeyer@movingtraditions.org .
