Resources and Additional Information

What parents are saying about Parenting Through a Jewish Lens:

  • “PTJL has created a place for me to think through critical matters that get lost in the day-to-day. It has opened conversations and has given me access to ideas that I hope to pursue long after the class ends.”
  • “I felt a sense of camaraderie; hearing lots of stories/perspectives makes me think, learn, and grow!”
  • “The class gave me new ideas, new strategies, and new insights. Our facilitator was great at making the material relevant to real life situations that we face as parents.”
