Join this book discussion with author Dasee Berkowitz, in conversation with Rabbi Michelle Robinson. Combining insights from thousands of years of traditional Jewish wisdom and contemporary literature on spirituality with her own utterly relatable first-person storytelling, Berkowitz helps readers embrace every moment with their families while leaning into the challenges of parenting with renewed perspective and enthusiasm.
This is not a parenting how-to book. It does not offer the usual advice or add to the to-do lists of busy parents. Instead, “Becoming a Soulful Parent” asks questions to help readers explore the contours of their inner life, developing their internal compass as they lead their families with love and wisdom.
“Becoming a Soulful Parent” covers inter-generational relationships, co-parenting, parenting during a pandemic and a host of other topics to help parents strengthen “muscles” that will be essential for both parents and children throughout their lives— muscles like love, listening, empathy and curiosity.
Dasee Berkowitz is a sought-after educator and facilitator and founder of Ayeka’s Becoming a Soulful Parent program. Her groundbreaking approach to education has been enthusiastically received by scores of Jewish community centers and synagogues since the program launched in 2015. Berkowitz has lectured internationally, served as scholar-in-residence for Jewish federations and trained facilitators at educational agencies across North America. Berkowitz was one of the original bloggers for the online Jewish parenting resource Kveller.com, and she has guest-written for the popular parenting lifestyle blog Cup of Jo. Her podcast, “Inspired Parenting,” a joint project by Ayeka and the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, debuted in 2018. As a Newton native, Berkowitz’s love and passion for Jewish life began in the walls of Temple Emanuel.
