Parent and Me Classes
For this child, I have prayed." // Samuel, I
IKAR’s Parent and Me classes focus on nurturing friendship, curiosity, respect, and Jewish identity for young children and their parents. During each class, we will learn together through music, art, cooking and play. Our parent discussions will focus on both the takhlis (nitty gritty) of parenting and also on what it means to be a Jewish parent.
