Sometimes the job of parenting seems downright overwhelming and many parents may wonder where they can turn for help and support. For thousands of years, Jewish tradition has offered guidance as to how to parent our children, but is that guidance relevant to today’s parent? Author Amy Grossblatt Pessah offers a resounding “Yes!” In her book, Parenting on a Prayer: Ancient Jewish Secrets for Raising Modern Children, Rabbi Amy Grossblatt Pessah mines the Jewish prayer book and discovers key values for thoughtful parenting, relating these values to the lessons she learned as a mother raising her three children. Pessah uses prayers and sacred teachings, as well as personal anecdotes, to craft a mindful, loving, and firm parenting strategy. She invites parents to learn not only from Jewish texts but also from their own inner wisdom. By weaving together Jewish texts and one’s inner wisdom, Pessah shares meaningful ways to raise today’s children with essential values such as love, humor, responsibility, and confidence.
