Naumburg visits Temple Sholom for parenting brunch

On Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 9:15 a.m., Temple Sholom will host writer, clinical social worker and mother, Carla Naumburg for the synagogue’s 2nd Annual Parenting Brunch.

The author will discuss her book, Parenting in the Present Moment: How to Stay Connected, Sane and Focused on What Really Matters. Guests will enjoy a presentation, discussion and brunch. The annual event is co-sponsored by Selma Maisel Nursery School and Temple Sholom Religious School Parent Associations and is open to the public.

Ms. Naumburg is on tour as part of the Jewish Book Council’s Authors on Tour program and she will lead the discussion and provide answers to common questions such as, “What is mindful parenting?,” “are mindful parents calm and happy all the time?” and “how do I let go of the idea of achieving perfection as a parent?” as well as many other modern parenting dilemmas.

Ms. Naumburg’s approach to parenting is “a natural fit for the parents of Temple Sholom’s congregation” according to Temple Sholom Associate Executive Director Lori Baden.

“Parents today are working longer hours while their children devote even more time to school, studying extracurricular’s, sports and of course, technology,” she said. “Parents feel obligated to do more and more throughout the day but for some reason the days aren’t getting any longer! This 2nd Annual Parenting Brunch is a chance for parents to slow down and take a moment to reflect on what really matters.”

The brunch will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 9:15 a.m. at Temple Sholom, 300 East Putnam Avenue. The event is open to the community and free of charge. RSVP by Nov. 15 to Alice Schoen, [email protected], 203-542-7165.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
