Jewish institutions today are struggling to meet the needs of families and children.  Frustrated facilitators work hard to design programs that fall short of their expectations and feel overwhelmed with the complexity of their needs.

Yom Kippur is a tricky topic to explore with young children. “Repentance” is a cognitively complex and ethically complicated concept that your children can explore for the rest of their lives. I like to explore the big ideas of Yom Kippur including self-reflection, self-regulation, and repair after conflict.
