Parent Havurah


BJEP’s Parent Havurah is a learning community for parents that allows us to spend time with like-minded folks who are raising our children to be Jewish.  While our kids are in class, we explore topics relevant to modern Jewish lives in an inclusive, comfortable setting where we are encouraged to voice our opinions and share our perspectives. We leave each class with new ideas for ourselves, and even more importantly, we discover what we want to teach our children.

Sunday Morning, Adult Torah Study
10:00am – 12:00pm in the Mandel Atrium
(Every Sunday BJEP is in session)

Led by: Evan Hershenson, MA. Judaic Studies

No background is necessary! Feel free to bring a Torah/Bible or borrow one of ours. Our topics vary each semester as we explore a variety of Jewish sacred texts. As in all books of the Torah, we are confronted by both inspirational words and great challenges to our modern sensibility. Feel free to drop in and engage in respectful dialogue.  Hope to see you there!

Parenting Through a Jewish Lens
In the past, we have hosted a monthly Parenting Through a Jewish Lens at BJEP and are open to running it again in the future! This 6-week course offered by Hebrew College and CJP is a great way to learn about Judaism while meeting other parents and getting parent support. Please email if you are interested in bringing this program back in 2019-2020.
