MAMARONECK, N.Y. – The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) in Mamaroneck will present The Art of Parenting, a six-session course that will begin during the week of Jan. 25.
Rabbi Mendel Silberstein of Chabad, Larchmont & Mamaroneck will run the course for six Sunday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. starting Jan.25, and six Mondays, starting the next night, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.
“As parents we are constantly being bombarded with various educational approaches and methods,” explains Rabbi Zalman Abraham of JLI’s New York headquarters. “How do you strike the correct balance between discipline and freedom? This course answers these great questions by looking to timeless Jewish wisdom.”
The course was designed by JLI to answer questions of how children and parents should relate to each other and how to help a child cultivate a healthy self-esteem.
The course is anchored in Jewish thought and practice, intended for parents to work on their own parenting philosophies and techniques.
“Empires and civilizations have come and gone, but the Jewish people have survived,” says Rabbi Silberstein, the local JLI instructor in Mamaroneck. “This course taps into the great Jewish parenting success story that is our people’s survival, against all odds, over the course of thousands of years.”
The Art of Parenting is designed to appeal to people at all levels, including those of other faiths.
All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees don't have to be affiliated with a house of worship.
Those interested in the course can call 914-834-8000 or go online to www.myJLI.com to register.
