Jewish Parenting Podcasts


Source: Jewish Parenting Podcasts 


The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) produces a biweekly podcast for Jewish parents delivered by noted experts in education, counseling, child development and other related fields. The short 2-7 minute segments about Jewish parenting can be downloaded and listened to on the go, played while sitting at the computer and multitasking or used as a basis for a parenting discussion group. The podcast segments are archived and classified by topic and speaker for easy retrieval.


The URJ blog carries follow-up discussions and resources on many of the podcast segments.


There is also a very useful resource page on how to turn the Parenting Podcasts into a Communal Jewish Parenting Discussion Group!
