You are the perfect Ayiddishe Momme, no doubt, but if you feel like learning some new things about modern Jewish parenting and meeting some new friends at the same time, then this pilot program is for you. Please read more about this exciting opportunity below. Fathers are welcome to join.

“How do we instill strong and proud Jewish identity in our children?”

That is the question.

If you are looking for the answer, you are on the right path.

The Greater Boston area lacks sophisticated Jewish educational and leadership-building activities that successfully attract, engage and retain “Generation 1.5” and especially Russian-speaking Jewish families. Particularly, there is a need for high level.

JPA Boston is provided by Center Makor and JPA NY.

The pilot curriculum will include the following topics:

  • Who am I? Jewish identity presentation and Q&A session
  • Passover and personal Exodus: Explore the Passover story and our personal exodus story. What story will we pass on to our children?
  • American Jewish history: What forces shaped the multi-denominational American Jewish community?
  • What does it mean to be a Jewish parent? Where do we go from here? Jewish parenting: What is the “tool kit” we want to pass down to our children?
  • Meeting with developmental psychologists:
    • Group for parents with kids ages 0-5: Early childhood development from birth; picky eaters and what to serve them (meeting with nutritionist)
    • Group for parents with kids ages 6-9: The power of reading with your child; recommended list of literature
