Families with children ages 8 and under are full participants in the life of Anshe Emet, and have a number of opportunities to socialize and engage in fun activities throughout the year. The Anshe Emet Young Families email group is a tremendous resource for finding out what is going on at Anshe Emet and in the community, and also for finding a nanny and swapping baby stuff.
Join virtually with Max Handelman, Anshe Emet’s Director of Family Life & Learning, and other parents with babies around Peri’s age, to hang out and discuss the joys and challenges of having a baby during COVID-19. Each week we’ll center our discussion around a valuable topic, and spend some time in small groups so you can get to know fellow parents.
Two groups will each meet for 5 sessions on July 20, 27, August 3, 10 and 17. Groups are open to one parent or both.
Mondays, 10:30-11:30 am | New Parents: parents with their first baby born since January 1, 2020
Mondays, 8:30-9:30pm | Experienced Parents: parents with a baby born since January 1, 2020 and an older sibling or two
Topics will depend on participant’s interests, but will likely include nurturing a practice of gratitude with your family, decreasing sibling rivalry, raising anti-racist kids, self care (and why taking care of yourself will help your baby become a mensch), Jewish songs and books to fill your home with, and incorporating Jewish traditions into your family’s life.
There is no charge to join an Anshe Emet New Baby Parent group. The new groups begin soon, so register today!
