The Journey of Jewish Parenting

Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30pm  · Starts September 30
Facilitated by Rabbi Finestone

Our Jewish values not only reflect the core values that we want to pass on to our children, but also help guide us as we raise our children in this secular world. In these two courses, we will explore together the Jewish values that guide us as parents, and the impact those values have on how we raise our children. During each session , we will read and discuss chapters from Dr. Wendy Mogel’s wonderful books, as well as supplemental texts from our heritage of Jewish writings. Come join Rabbi Finestone as we take the Journey of Jewish Parenting together.
