Parenting Classes

One of the many benefits of being part of our JCC Chicago Early Childhood family, is access to premiere parenting classes that offer guidance, tools, intension and the chance to deepen friendships.

Join us for a six-week parenting series, grounded in Jewish wisdom and text, to help guide the kind of parent and partner we want to become. Rachel Schwartz, JCC Chicago’s Director of Social Services, will facilitate the group and help you connect with others on their parenting journey.

This is a program supported by PJ Library Chicago, a program of JUF Young Families- connecting families to Jewish life in Chicago.

This group is geared toward parents with at least one child between the ages of 2-5.
