We have had past success hosting our Rosh Hodesh and Shevet groups–powered by Moving Traditions–in homes. We are excited families will be hosting groups again this year!

If you are willing to host, please consider these guidelines for hosting.

Host Guidelines 2021-2022

Update 12/1/2021:
Bet Torah teens can eat together indoors, if the host parents would like to serve food indoors. Food should be vegetarian with options for teens with dietary restrictions. Indoors, masks must be worn when not eating. Please email Loen Amer if you have any questions.

Many Bet Torah families have outdoor space–protected from rain–where they could host a group of 8-15, which is ideal for hosting a group. A large room is also a possibility. Please use this Social Distancing Room Space Calculator based on the size of your teen’s group, plus group leader, staying three feet apart. Group leader and participants will be masked. Please only offer to host if you have sufficient space rain/snow or shine.

All gathering spaces need to be sufficiently separate that the group has separate space in the home where they can share feelings without being overheard. Family members (including siblings) are asked to respect this privacy and not join the group during the gathering.

At least one parent/adult guardian should be in the home at all times while the group leader is present.

Group leaders are tasked with enforcing our Kulanu/TLC Health Protocols. Thank you for supporting them.


Group leaders will be setting their group monthly group gatherings, scheduled in concert with their group’s needs.

If your teen is in an established group, please speak to them to offer to host. To host class of 2026 groups, or class of 2025 Shevet, please fill out this form.
