Join Rabbi Getzel Davis and other dads for a feminist and anti-racist exploration of what it means to raise young children today. This cycle we will be focusing on our relationships with our children — how to practice love, envision our role as father, explore intimacy with our children, and what it means to teach and rolemodel. Through a combination of reflection on modern and ancient Jewish wisdom, self-reflection, and a good amount of group process, fathers will explore together questions of identity and spirituality. By the end of this course, we will all have made new friends, have a clearer sense of how Jewish identity intersects with parenting and develop strategies for becoming a better father and partner. Enthusiastically open to all regardless of Jewish education, Hebrew background, interfaith status, or queer identity.
Hebrew College Open Circle Jewish Learning is for learners of all backgrounds.
