Check out his lectures, they helped me change how I viewed myself and how I parent my teens and over times helped me turn things around dramatically in our home for the better.

There's nothing to be ashamed about

As much as we hear about the importance of not judging our children, it’s beautiful to see change in our community where so many parents dealing with this parsha can come together and not judge each other.

We need more of that!

There’s nothing to be ashamed about.
We all have our struggles.
No need to hide and suffer in shame and silence.

Thank you Kesher Nafshi for facilitating this!

We need more events like this.

This weekend was by far the most uplifting shabbos. We were United together all walks of life
to be there for each other.
to cry and to laugh
it was the best medicine
we can’t wait for the next shabbaton
thank you to all the organizers

Is there any recordings

For people that can’t get away

Struggle

Indeed it’s a struggle for someone to grow away from his parent’s or his born-society. And indeed it’s a struggle for a parent to experience their offspring choosing a life track that differs from their own value system. I hope that this weekend and its speakers offered that it’s best that parent and child simply respect the other’s choices and that there’ s no one truth or way to live.
