We are international! Shehecheyanu. We just learned that our book, Jewish Spiritual Parenting: Wisdom, Activities, Rituals and Prayers for Raising Children with Spiritual Balance and Emotional Wholeness (Jewish Lights Publishing), has its first overseas book group. In England.
The “Apples & Honey Parenting Group at Wimbledon Synagogue,” is comprised of parents whose children go to Apples & Honey, their nursery school. Yup, the book is in in Great Britain!
My new friend, Connor Guntrip, writes:
We’ve just held our first parenting discussion group meeting of the year and covered Chapters 4 & 5 in your book. We’re really enjoying your insights and teachings, and the book leads to lots of interesting discussions about the rearing of our children in today’s world.
Your letter writing suggestions (in the chapter on Emet/Truth) reminded me so much of my father & mother. I have about 5 shoe boxes full of letters from them, from when I first left for summer camp at 7, on through university at 22. Then emailing arrived and things changed a bit, but I treasure the letters, and most especially the ones that shared their meet (truth).
Also, the Discussion Guide was very helpful. Thank you so much.
With the book celebrating its second printing, we schepp nachas (share the joy) as parenting groups read and discuss Jewish Spiritual Parenting, using our discussion guide as a jumping off point. Let us know if we can help guide your parenting or book group.
