About Moving Traditions 

Moving Traditions believes it is critically important for the Jewish community at this time of cultural upheaval and polarization to help Jewish preteens and teens navigate the world so they will thrive as healthy, ethical, and Jewishly connected people. While a majority of Jewish teens will become b-mitzvah, most drop out of Jewish life soon after, leaving the Jewish community at a critical stage, just when they are figuring out who they are and how to behave in a society that often dictates narrow and unhealthy gender roles and ways of dealing with differences. Moving Traditions connects the issues preteens and teens care about most—such as body image, social and academic pressure, friendship, romance, and sexuality—to enduring Jewish values, fosters positive peer-to-peer relationships through the trained educators and mentors, and inspires participants to develop an ongoing connection to the Jewish community. By promoting a more inclusive and expansive view of gender for Jewish girls, boys, and transgender and nonbinary teens, Moving Traditions creates a more vibrant, engaging Judaism that helps all teens to flourish.

About the Position

The Moving Traditions CEO reports to the Board of Directors, is supervised by the Board Chair, and has overall strategic and operational responsibility for the organization. The CEO:

  • Combines leadership and management abilities and is responsible for the organization's consistent achievement of its mission, strategic goals, and financial objectives. 
  • Articulates the vision and goals of the organization to inspire the Jewish community to better understand and work with youth, and to secure resources and build relationships to advance the organization.
  • Advances the organization’s culture, capability, processes, and impact.
  • Ensures that Moving Traditions has a long-range strategy to achieve its mission, and toward which the organization makes consistent and timely progress. 
  • Monitors trends and opportunities and leads the adaptation of Moving Traditions’ tactics as needed.
  • Partners with the Chair to enable the Board to fulfill its governance and fiduciary functions. 
  • Inspires innovation and works with the Vaad (Moving Tradition’s high-performance management team) to ensure that the organization is continually well equipped to advance its mission, makes progress on goals defined in the strategic plan, and achieves annual goals and objectives.
