Parenting Through a Jewish Lens Advisory Committee Chair
September 10, 2013

Five years ago this week I started on my Jewish parenting journey when my son was born.  As an interfaith couple we had decided to raise a Jewish family, but neither of us had specific traditions we felt we had to observe, and therefore we had an open road map for the paths we might […]

It served as an oasis of goodness in my week and helped me gain perspective. I could express myself and explore my Jewish identity, an identity that my normal, […]

Graduate, Parenting Through a Jewish Lens
August 5, 2013

Since the afternoon in high school when my cross-country coach (who was my history teacher, a novelist and a stand-up comedian) shared his philosophy of never being unprepared, preparation has been key to everything I do. Before starting any project, I like to research, investigate, ask questions and then make decisions that are as informed […]

Instructor, Parenting Through a Jewish Lens; Participant, Me’ah
July 23, 2013

As I sit on the porch in New Hampshire with the sun shining and the pond glistening through the trees in the distance, fall feels very far away. If only there was a way to slow down time. (So far the only way I’ve found to do that is to “plank” – that tortuous position […]

Graduate, Me’ah
June 11, 2013

Me’ah was one of those things you heard about at synagogue meetings, Kiddush, the JCC or other places Jews in the community gather. Most of our friends knew about the two year course of study, and some of the braver types with young children had even taken it. Everyone we spoke to said we must do […]

After six years of wanting to take Parenting Through a Jewish Lens we finally made it happen this year. The 10 week PTJL course at Temple Beth Shalom in Needham certainly lived up to our expectations.

Student, Me’ah
May 31, 2013

I am a happy participant in a Me’ah study group, having recently completed my first year of the two-year study program. Although at times a daunting amount of reading for an over-scheduled professional, the Me’ah program rewards amply (and, indeed, I have kept up with the reading, letting things like piano practice slide). I signed […]

May 21, 2013

I came to Me’ah as I came to Judaism: filled with a desire to immerse myself as much as possible in the incredible and vast sea of learning, wisdom, and spiritual wonder that Judaism evokes for me. I grew up in an intensely Catholic home, though my parents were a “mixed marriage.”  My mother was […]
