When Julie Greenberg was in her mid twenties, a single woman studying to be a rabbi, she wondered how she would create a family. This book tells the story of Greenberg's journey into spirited motherhood, and of how she parented her five children within a web of relationships that included donor dads, a gay male parenting partner, birth parents, multiracial children, women lovers, as well as her loving family of origin. Just Parenting draws on Greenberg's years of experience as a Rabbi, family therapist and activist, weaving together memoir and of practical how-to. Greenberg connects big issues such as race, class and peace, with micro moments of parenting such as dinner table squabbles. Childcare available at a $5-$10 sliding scale upon RSVP.
