Parenting Young Children: A Book Discussion with Rabbi Bedo

Sunday, June 4, 2023 15 Sivan 5783

10:00 AM - 11:30 AMLibrary

Let's discuss what our lives look like as parents. Rabbi Bedo will lead a discussion of the joys and trials of parenting young children, based on the book Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting by Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg. We encourage you to read the book (available on Amazon in hardcover, paperback and Kindle). Free childcare available for ages 18 months to 7 years old. Please register below by Tuesday, May 23.

About the Book

Every day, parents are bombarded by demands. The pressures of work and life are relentless; our children’s needs are often impossible to meet; and we rarely, if ever, allow ourselves the time and attention necessary to satisfy our own inner longings. Parenthood is difficult, demanding, and draining. And yet, argues Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg in Nurture the Wow, if we can approach it from a different mindset, perhaps the work of parenting itself can offer the solace we seek. Enlightening, uplifting, and laugh-out-loud funny, Nurture the Wow reveals how parenthood, in all its crazy-making, rage-inducing, awe and joy-filled moments can actually be the path to living fully, authentically, and soulfully.


The registration deadline has passed and childcare is full. If you do not need childcare and are interested in the discussion, please RSVP to Erin Dreyfuss at
