Join Rabbi Getzel Davis and Boston-based dads for a feminist and anti-racist exploration of what it means to raise young Jewish children today. This cycle we will be focusing on our relationships with our partners — how to practice love, negotiate careers, intimacy, and aging parents up against the incredible work of being a dad. Through a combination of reflection on modern and ancient Jewish wisdom, and conversation, fathers will explore questions of identity and spirituality. By the end of this course, we will have a clearer sense of how Jewish identity and upbringing intersect with our 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.
