Ever wonder what Judaism has to say about parenting? Or how to find spirituality while caregiving? Or how to apply Jewish values and holiness to the mundane acts of parenthood? Rabbi Elyssa Cherney explores these questions and more through the lens of ancient, modern and contemporary Jewish thinkers. Using a Reconstructionist Jewish perspective, we will explore ideas from Mussar, mindfulness and spirituality along with popular parenting techniques to learn how Judaism can act as a guide for raising the next generation. This course is open to all those interested in navigating traditions and rituals in their home and exploring where Judaism may fit into their lives and their roles as parents. 


Rabbi Elyssa Cherney is the founder and CEO of Tacklingtorah. She was ordained by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She strives to make life’s ordinary moments into extraordinary ones. 

She believes holiness is created by helping people find meaning in their lives at moments especially at moments of transition. That can be a major lifecycle moment: birth, becoming an adult, finding a partner, becoming a parent, and death; or at all the moments in-between. 

Rabbi Elyssa runs the organization Tacklingtorah as a way to connect with others and help people think differently about what role Judaism can play in their everyday lives.  

She works with many individuals, couples and families as a spiritual guide as they navigate their Jewish journey .  When she is not working on creating holiness, Rabbi Elyssa is also a daughter, wife, mother, traveler and car packer extraordinaire.
