Foundations for Jewish Family Living

Starting Feb. 1st. This learning opportunity for parents provides a thought-provoking encounter with the core values of Judaism. There will be 10 classes on Sunday mornings beginning Feb. 1, taught by Rabbi Rebecca Ben-Gideon and developed by the renowned Florence Melton Adult Mini-School, a project of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Each lesson focuses on one of the great "master stories" from the Bible and the Jewish tradition, and also includes texts and articles that analyze and contemporize the issues. Discussion is lively and the opportunity to share the challenges of parenting provides a great backdrop for the class.

Topics include being created in God's image, welcoming guests, caring for the environment, teaching respect, creating Jewish space, the value of Shabbat rest, prayer, remembering Egypt, pursuing peace, and the Jewish value of hope.
