Moving Forward Together

Jewish Approaches to Parenting in Challenging Times

Thursday, February 29, 2024  |  6:00 – 7:15pm  |  Virtual

Panelists: Andrea Guttman, LMFT and Becca Lantry, AMFT

For many in the Jewish community, practicing self-care amidst these challenging times can be difficult, most notably for parents with young children. Creating space that allows for challenging conversations with your child(ren) may seem daunting and overwhelming, especially when processing your own complex emotions. We invite you to be a part of a supportive community conversation that will explore the intersection of Jewish values, social-emotional development, and mental health in the context of raising resilient and thriving children.

Join the Center for Jewish Care for a uniquely Jewish conversation with Andrea Guttman, LMFT, and Becca Lantry, AMFT, as we discuss ways parents can support their child(ren) during this stressful time, practical tips for having those hard conversations, and the importance of caring for yourself in order to care for others.

Community Conversations: Learning Together

The Center for Jewish Care at JFS provides a home to engage in authentic and meaningful Jewish conversations. As a community, we have a rich history of studying our ancient texts to reveal values that can inform our beliefs and actions. While some individuals commit to personal study, our tradition also encourages studying in pairs or community (hevruta) recognizing that healthy discussion and debate can illuminate alternate perspectives, new understandings, and innovative approaches to today’s challenges. Together, we critically examine how the teachings of our heritage can be applied to modern issues, whether how to maintain our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing, care for our loved ones and neighbors in need, or even fresh takes on current headlines. Each conversation welcomes our community into dialogue with thought-provoking community leaders, clergy, educators, therapists, and other national and local experts. The Center for Jewish Care invites you to study and learn with us.
