Intergenerational Sunday School

MAKING IT REAL!
Kol HaLev is reconstructing Sunday School through an innovative intergenerational educational program called “Making it Real.”  We meet monthly to discuss, discover, and experience how engaging Jewish thought and practice can support your family in real and useful ways. 
 
Each monthly meeting will have a theme, an activity, and an opportunity to find alignment with your held values. We are certain that this format will be fun for the entire family, inclusive for participants of every age, including those who don’t have children living at home. Everyone is welcome! 
We celebrate interfaith families who want to explore how Judaism may inform and enrich their family time. 
 
Our first meeting was in the KHL Sukkah!
 
This program is led by Rabbi Steven Silvern and Student Rabbi Emily Stern. Rabbi Steven holds a PhD in Child Development. He has over 30 years of experience working with families and developing programs that support healthy family life. Emily is a student Rabbi in the ALEPH Ordination Program: The Alliance for Jewish Renewal. We value the personal component of this exploration, so please feel free to reach out and contact us. Our approach is personal, and we want to support you in what you want to achieve in your family dynamics. Our working theory is that the teachings of Judaism are useful launch-pads for meaningful family engagement.
