Parenting from Within, Sundays 11 A.M. to Noon When Religious School Is In Session

With Rabbi David Klatzker, Ph.D.

Drop your kids off at Religious School or come for the 9:00 am service, run errands, then join us for Cantor Frank’s famous coffee and an opportunity to meet other parents and discuss Jewish “mindfulness” practices in relation to parenting.

We will study “Mussar”—Jewish values and concepts to enhance our parenting practices and our relationships with our children.

Examples of the character traits we will discuss: Patience, humility, respect, order, trust, equanimity, lovingkindness. A different trait every week, so don’t worry if you have to miss a week.

No Jewish educational background is assumed. All are welcome. There is no charge.

RSVP to by November 4.
