Pathways to Parenting

Pathways to Parenting

In this episode, we speak with Amy Weinreb about parenting, family dynamics, and questions of “home.” Amy is a cultural anthropologist and senior lecturer at the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies at The University of Texas at Austin and the author of Cuba in the Shadow of Change: Daily Life in the Twilight of the Revolution. Amy is joined by Lisa Osborn, Elena Rafael, Carolyn Mahboubi, and Matthew Hilgart, each of whom shares their own relationship with Judaism and Jewishness, parenting, and finding pride and joy in family.
