JFEN is intended for professionals working with families whose children are age 5-12.
Join us for lunch and an engaging conversation to frame and contextualize Jewish experiences within the tapestry of family life. We will strategize ways to help families create bridges between the experiences we offer and their activities at home and in the world.
We will be joined by Rabbi Lauren Ben Shoshan, a local writer, thinker, leader and parent.
After completing her undergraduate degrees in Religion and History from the College of William and Mary in her home state of Virginia, Lauren continued to Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion, where she earned a Masters of Religious Education, a Masters of Hebrew Letters, and ordination as a rabbi. After living in Israel for several years, she and her husband moved back to the United States; this time, they settled in the Bay Area. While her primary focus is raising their four young children, Lauren sometimes sneaks away to engage in her passions of researching and writing. In addition to her daily practicums on parenting and resiliency, Lauren's current research topics include grief and mourning, plus consent and intimacy. Lauren describes her work in education as on the cutting edge of Jewish homeschooling.
Cost: $36.00 - Space is limited to 15 participants.
