The Adolescent Brain: Transitions, Trials, and Triumphs

  • Peninsula Temple Beth El 1700 Alameda de las Pulgas San Mateo, CA, 94403 United States (map)

Kehillah (formerly Supporting Parents of Adolescents) is supportive community of learning and social opportunities for parents of teenagers at PTBE. Kehillah (community) is where Jewish parents can find new and exciting ways of engaging in temple life after their children become bar/bat mitzvah. Together, we seek to build a community of education, connection, and growth.

This program is for parents of teens.
