Community Learning @ The Well

Family Life

That Jews see themselves as family is no surprise. Before we were “Am Yisrael,” the People Israel, we were “B’nai Yisrael,” the extended family of Abraham and Sarah.

Today, family configurations may have changed but many challenges are no different than those faced by our ancestors. Therefore, we turn to Jewish wisdom for guidance in raising young children, parenting teenagers, creating a supportive interfaith family, navigating the “sandwich generation,” grand-parenting Jewish grandchildren and wise-aging.
