Sh'ma Groups Corner

Meet the Palo Alto Families with Teens Group!

Get to know Sh’ma Groups!* This month, we feature the Palo Alto Families with Teens group, formed in 2017 and led by group guides Elizabeth Eastman and Ben Cintz. Their group consists of four Palo Alto couples with middle school-aged and high school-aged kids. They truly enjoy each other's company, trading stories and advice on parenting while incorporating humor and laughter in each meeting. One of their most memorable meetings was around the Ask Big Questions topic of gratitude. Elizabeth commented, "The discussion had some poignant moments, and it gave me insight that I hadn't had before." In 2019, the group is excited about continuing to enjoy their connection together while exploring the curriculum and educational materials in a deeper manner.

*Sh’ma Groups are comprised of 8-15 people, including a trained guide, who meet regularly in members’ homes to build relationships, deepen connections and grow Jewishly together through meaningful conversations. Learn more about starting a group or joining a group.
