Parenting: What works and what doesn’t work
A foremost figure in the world of Jewish education today, Rabbi Dov Brezak addresses the specific challenges that parents and their children face in our turbulent times. His profound yet simple, straightforward approach is brimming with encouragement and practical techniques that speak to the heart and to the common sense of each and every parent; his every word is brimming with Torah values and a deep, all-encompassing love for every Jewish child.
In his many roles, as a parent, principal, author, lecturer and consultant, Rabbi Brezak has proven himself a master in bringing out the best in our most precious possessions and our most vital resource – our children. His personable, extremely human approach, spiced with wit, humor and tireless enthusiasm, has changed the face of the Torah world.
In recent years tens of thousands of parents and teachers have benefitted from Rabbi Brezak’s wisdom through his ever-popular articles, his book – Chinuch in Turbulent Times, his newsletters, his workshops, his tapes and his lectures. In the process, he has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of children of all ages and in all circumstances the world over.
Project Kavey, founded and directed by Rabbi Brezak, is a resource center providing ongoing support for hundreds of parents weekly. A variety of programs helps parents succeed in the most important task they will ever undertake. Project Kavey offers, among other resources, a parenting helpline with counselors available for both men and women; live interactive workshops in person and via teleconference; an e mail telephone fax question center in which questions received from across the globe are answered, and ‘The Weekly Parenting Line’ forum. For children, Project Kavey sponsors a school and a variety of neighborhood groups.
Rabbi Brezak’s dream is incredibly ambitious: he hopes to shape the future of Jewish life; and thus far he is succeeding, child by child.
