By Marcy Leiman


Parenting Through a Jewish Lens, a 10-week exploration of core values is scheduled to begin October, 2014. This course touches on numerous parenting issues including how to incorporate daily rituals, how to parent during a loss, how to approach tzedakah or charity as a family, how to connect to a larger Jewish community and so much more.

Taught by knowledgeable, creative, and skilled instructors, PTJL reaches a diverse background of participants ranging from Orthodox, Conservative, Reform to Jewish by choice and those of other faiths. The instructors are skilled at getting to know the participants on a personal level and tailoring lessons to meet their needs and concerns.  As one parent stated, “Our instructor brings to each session incredible depth of knowledge, broad-minded perspectives, thoughtfulness, and experience as a parent.”

Parenting Through a Jewish Lens is a joint program of Hebrew College and Combined Jewish Philanthropies Commission on Jewish Life and Learning.

Classes are held throughout the Greater Boston area mainly in synagogues. For a complete listing of sites, times and instructors or to register, visit:

“PTJL has created a place for me to think through critical matters that get lost in the day to day.  It has opened conversations between me and my spouse and has given me access to ideas and texts I hope to pursue long after the class ends.” To begin your journey or for more information, please contact Marcy Leiman at 617-559-8734.
