Spring 5783: Parenting Through a Jewish Lens

Instructor: Rabbi Gail Swedroe

Description: What a time to be a parent! This 6-week cohort will give participants a renewed sense of community and opportunity to reflect on how to parent with intentionality. Give yourself the gift of friendship, adult conversations, personal learning so that you can bring your best self forward when engaged in the sacred act of parenting. 

*Please note-This semester will be focusing on different themes from last semester’s offerings and last semester is not a prerequisite for this semester*

This curriculum, published by Hebrew College, will focus on how to prepare our children to be independent, confident people with a strong connection to their Jewish identity focusing on the following themes:

  • Parenting for Resilience
  • Parenting for Responsibility
  • God Talk and Spirituality
  • Making Space for Self-Expression
  • How Our Families Connect with Israel
  • Hopes and Dreams for Our Children

Participants will engage with relevant and accessible Jewish texts, be empowered with parenting strategies and approaches derived from both Jewish and secular sources, participate in rich and important conversations sharing their own experiences and insights on parenting, connect with other parents and to enjoy the benefits of community. 

Participants are asked to commit to attending the entire 6 week series as each session builds upon itself and we are seeking to build intentional community.
