Network: Jewish Bedtime Rituals (2016-17)

How Can Jewish Bedtime Rituals Help Children Feel Loved And Secure?

Facilitated by Rabbi Vivie Mayer, Director of the Mekhinah Year Program and Bet Midrash at RRC

For anyone who is responsible for children’s bedtime routines

Wednesdays 1 p.m-2 p.m. EST – Jan. 25, Feb. 1 & Feb. 8

The Jewish tradition has a beautiful bedtime ritual that helps people of all ages to pause nightly, take account, practice forgiving and feel secure. Reciting the prayers and songs with children at bedtime creates a loving bond, teaches self- soothing and cultivates Jewish spiritual intelligence. We will explore methods of teaching these prayers to enable parents and others to design the Jewish bedtime ritual that best suits their families.
