Join us for a family event, including dinner, havdalah, a book reading and discussion.
Rabbi Ma’ayan Sands received ordination from the Rabbinical School at Hebrew College in 2016. Prior to that she was the director of BJEP, the independent Hebrew school on the Brandeis University campus and the family educator at Temple Israel of Natick. She loves enabling people, especially families, to have access to a Judaism that will have meaning and fulfillment for each one in her own way. She is happily married, has four grown children and four grandchildren.
Rabbi Ma’ayan’s introduction to her children’s book, “Does God Have Ears That Really Work?” and this family event: Talking about God can be very challenging, especially in our role as parents. Why? Because, as adults, we often don’t know what or whether we believe about God. It can be uncomfortable to say, “I don’t know,” in response to children’s questions. For all these reasons and more, I read my published storybook to families, parents and/or grandparents and children, together, to facilitate an engaging, multi-generational, supportive discussion about God. Children and their adults will come to understand that having answers is neither necessary nor important. Being curious, open-minded and willing to engage in discussion will help parents develop enduring tools for challenging discussions with their children (and even among themselves).+ More... - Less...
