A Special Post Mother’s Day Author Event At The Levi Yitzchak Library

Even after enjoying the special Mother’s Day treats, the worries continue. “Are Shayna’s friends good for her?” “Is Leah losing too much weight?”, “Why are Malka’s grades going down?”No one ever said motherhood was easy but raising Jewish girls presents its own special challenges.

On Monday, May 14, 8:00 p.m., The Levi Yitzchak Library is pleased to present as part of its Meet The Author series a supportive and informative evening with Dr. Miriam Grossman, author of “The Wonder Of Becoming You.” Dr. Grossman is a practicing physician, author, public speaker, and media commentator. She attended NYU Medical School and completed her residency in psychiatry followed by a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry through Cornell University. She has been featured on over 200 radio, news, and television shows. Dr. Grossman has lectured at the British House of Lords and the United Nations Council on the Status of Women.

Dr Grossman speaks to parents, students, educators, policymakers, and health professionals on the importance of childhood innocence. In “The Wonder of Becoming You,” she advises parents on how to educate their daughters on the changes that take place in the elementary years, through a Torah perspective.

Learn from Dr. Grossman in person as she discusses, “PassingOn The Gift Of Womanhood To The Next Generation,” at the Levi Yitzchak Library, 564 Central Ave in Cedarhurst, NY.There is a suggested donation of $10. “The Wonder OfBecoming You” will be available for purchase.
