Parenting Through a Jewish Lens (PTJL) is a journey for parents of all backgrounds.

  • Explore compelling Jewish texts and traditions facilitated by expert instructors.
  • Share stories and ideas about raising children.
  • Connect with other parents in your community. 
  • Enjoy free on-site babysitting for daytime classes.

We welcome interfaith couples, LGBT parents, single parents and those raised in other faiths.

What parents are saying:

“PTJL enabled me to slow down and think about how I want to raise my child.”

“Our discussions afforded me a view into other parents’ lives—I wasn’t alone in searching for answers to my kids’ questions.”

“I had never been excited about text study. Suddenly, both ancient and contemporary sources had something to say to me!”

PTJL is a program of Hebrew College and is supported by CJP.
