Identity & Responsibility, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

The day-to-day grind of parenting (especially parents of little kids) leaves many parents little time or space for a spiritual practice. Is parenthood a distraction from living a spiritual life or can Jewish wisdom transform the way we parent to deepen our spiritual lives? Join us as the panelists reflect on these and other questions.
