Shalom Dessert Series: Caring for Our Children

Hilary Clinton famously said, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Because it is the job of all people in the community to help and nurture our children, this series of presentations deals with the following issues: How do we provide spiritual nurture to our children? How do we prevent, detect and treat child abuse? How do we help undereducated and underemployed teens? What are the current health issues for children and how do we foster good health? How do we support children who enter the justice system? How do we encourage and support educational achievement for our children?
