SPRINGFIELD – Temple Beth El is offering a class this fall for parents of young children, under the auspices of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning. The Foundations of Jewish Family Living class is a curriculum for parents of school-age children that provides a thought-provoking encounter with the core values of Judaism. Developed by the renowned Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning, a project of The Hebrew University, the curriculum brings to life the master stories from our tradition and the profound messages they convey.
This rich learning experience for adults will provide an opportunity for parents to bring the Jewish conversation home to share with their children and provides parents with the education, the language, and the confidence to be a teacher to their children. This class is for the whole family; children’s learning activities and babysitting will be held at the same time. The Jewish Family Living class is co-sponsored by Temple Beth El and the Springfield JCC.
