What does it mean to raise a child as Jewish? What from your own parent(s) and family heritage are you trying to pass on to your kids? When should you prioritize yourself over your kids? How do you balance the multiple demands and values that are constantly tugging at Jewish parents? This four-part learning series will use chevruta (paired learning) text study as a mode to explore these questions of Jewish parenting. We’ll learn together as a group on Zoom, meet in pairs on your own schedule for two weeks, and then gather IRL at the EDCJCC on for a final learning session and to discuss resources and ideas for celebrating the fall holidays with your family.
Thursdays, October 13-December 8, 2022
Taught by Rabbi JoHanna Potts
Come explore the rich fabric of Judaism! Using traditional texts and modern examples, we will cover the fundamentals of Jewish life, including Shabbat and holidays, prayer, lifecycle rituals, ethics, and beliefs. This class is ideal for learners with questions—whether you’ve never studied Judaism before in your life, you’re looking for a Hebrew School refresher, or you’re somewhere in between!
* Learning should never be cost-prohibitive. If the cost of any EDCJCC class prevents you from registering, please contact Amanda Herring at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss payment plans or other alternatives.
