Parenting Workshop

BAS parents with children of all ages are invited to attend one or more of these parenting workshops.

Ellen Weisberg, a social worker from Westchester Jewish Community Services, and Abby Reiken will lead the workshop.

The focus of the 2/13 workshop will be ways parents can create opportunities for children of all ages to express gratitude. Please read chapter 6 of Jewish Spiritual Parenting in advance of this workshop.  Parents will share their successes and challenges and support one another.

These parenting workshops are the continuation of discussions we started about parenting Jewish children at our Torah La'am fall family programs using the book Jewish Spiritual Parenting.  Each of the three fall family programs (one for grades K,1,4, one for grades 2&5, and one for grades 3&6) had a different focus.  The topics included spirituality, Jewish parenting goals, gratitude, finding time for meaningful conversations with our children, and helping our children with reframing and decision making.  

For more information contact Abby Reiken.  Babysitting is available at these workshops, if requested in advance with Abby.

Reflections from parents who attended the January parenting workshop:

  • appreciated the openness and honesty of participants and building community with other parents in this sharing environment
  • felt validated in the struggles of parenting and learned strategies I want to try
  • helpful to hear viewpoints and experiences of other parents, including parents with teens
  • everyone was engaged in the discussion

Additional workshops on March 18 and April 15.
