It’s a Guy Thing!
For boys in 8th-9th grades. Nishmah is championing an approach to Jewish life that connects character development of this generation of teens to the ongoing effort to build a Jewish community where women and men experience spiritual, intellectual and moral growth. It’s a Guy Thing! is a program for teen boys created by Moving Traditions. It’s a great opportunity for teens to connect or re-connect with the Jewish community through guidance, friendship, and fun. Hang out with other teen boys and learn what it means to be a Jewish teen and man today. The program will challenge teen boys to think about and talk about issues that they may not have time or opportunity to do elsewhere.

“My first year of Guy Thing was amazing. The first meeting, I didn’t know everyone, but there were familiar faces to greet me. Playing sports and talking with those guys was always hilarious and I can’t wait to come back.” – IAGT participant

“No matter how committed parents are to teaching their sons how to make ethically sound choices and how to find a meaningful place in their community, that message has a unique sense of importance when a “Guy” learns it with a cadre of cool advisors and a great peer group.” –IAAGT parent
