Becoming a Soulful Parent


Becoming a Soulful Parent is a course that invites small groups of parents embracing their daily parenting struggles and rewards through the context of Jewish wisdom and community.

The course allows parents to take the time out of their hectic lives to reflect honestly about the challenges and joys of parenting. The course provides participants with:

  • New insights into their role as parents
  • Deepened awareness of their parenting and of their children
  • Appreciation for their spouse’s different parenting style
  • A community of friends and co-travelers in the journey of parenting

How it works:

You identify talented facilitators in your community, and Dasee Berkowitz, the director of the program trains facilitators in how to effectively use the ‘Becoming a Soulful Parent’ curriculum. Then gather a group of parents together and enjoy the series.

Becoming a Soulful Parent cohorts will be taking place across the US and Israel in the coming year in cities that include:

Palm Beach Florida

Coral Gables, Florida

Denver, Colorado

Poughkeepsie, New York

Raleigh, North Carolina

Dallas, Texas

Bridgeport, CT

Tel Aviv, Israel

Modi’in, Israel

To inquire about starting a cohort in your community, contact Dasee Berkowitz,


Becoming a Soulful Parent it answered a need in my life; the need for connection, reinforcement and validation. — Mother of three

Becoming a Soulful Parent… made me feel less alone. I appreciated being able to devote time to my partner and discussing our children in the context of meaningful texts. — Mother of two

We are all trying to “do it right.” Having a cadre of fellow parents – all of whom make mistakes like the rest of us – who are willing to slow down the intensity of life with kids to connect, listen, reflect and consider the most soulfully wise approaches to raising children is refreshing and extremely helpful. — Father of two
