I’ve scheduled a couple of terrific classes for 2022 and want to give you a heads-up.
First, we’ll look at a topic that people fear for no reason:
Honoring Your Jewish Child’s Non-Jewish Heritage
How will you teach your children about the “other” parent’s traditions and heritage? Every child must know who they are, where they come from and what their parents’ backgrounds, culture, experiences and traditions are. But frequently when raising a child Jewish the parents are nervous about discussing practices and behaviors that are not Jewish. This is really not as hard as it sounds. Let’s talk about the ways to do this that support a child’s growing identity.
Second, I have the fabulous teacher, Kim Carter Martinez, returning to offer her workshop, Jews of Color: Taking Charge of Your Jewish Identity.
Kim will discuss how Jews of color can strengthening their confidence in Jewish environments and develop tools to deal with questioners.
Both classes will be in March 2022.
