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.
Parenting Through a Jewish Lens
This year we are hosting another monthly Parenting Through a Jewish Lens at BJEP! The course runs monthly from November 13 2016 to April 2, 2017. This 6-week program offered by Hebrew College and CJP is a great way to meet other parents, get parenting support and learn about Judaism. Our class meets on Sundays at BJEP, monthly 10 – 11:30 AM. Free babysitting is included and this class is free for parents in the Seedlings program. We will have the same dynamic teacher Rabbi Hillel Greene.

No background is necessary! Feel free to bring a Torah/Bible or borrow one of ours. This semester we will be delving into the book of Joshua. 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. A donation for the semester is suggested, but if it is a financial hardship, please speak to me – all conversations are confidential and you are welcome to attend regardless. Hope to see you there!
