The children are enrolled in school or daycare, classes and activities, playgroups and sports. What are you doing for yourself in this New Year?
Jewish tradition teaches that at the time of the New Year, Rosh Hashanah, we reflect on our past year, and consider what changes or improvements we want to bring to ourselves in the year to come.
Parenting Through a Jewish Lens offers parents the opportunity to take an hour and a half a week to think about what matters most. What do we value, and what do we want to transmit to our children? What rituals and traditions do we want to pass on, and what do we want to create? It’s a time to enrich one’s own life with study and discussion, and enrich one’s family with newly discovered ideas and choices.
The beginning of the New Year is a perfect time for parents to add something inspirational to their own schedules. Classes begin in mid-October, and there are still spaces available in Boston, Brookline, Burlington, Concord, Holliston, Natick and Wayland.

From everyone at Parenting Through a Jewish Lens, best wishes for a healthy, happy, and meaningful New Year!
