Hear From Project Kindle Participants
Suri T., Lakewood, New Jersey
“There’s so much I want to say but if I don’t just write something right now, I’m afraid I’ll never start. The most profound impact I’ve felt from Kindle (I anticipated each class with bated breath!) was on my parenting. Even before we got to the parenting class, I’d already noticed how my emotions were so deeply enmeshed in the parenting journey, but when you brought the pieces together in that class, I knew my parenting would never be the same… It isn’t, and I hope it will keep getting better and healthier be”H.”
Ahuva M., Golders Green, London
“The other day, I caught myself going down the Child route when my husband did something that wasn’t to my liking. Wow, that moment of choosing that I want to be the Adult wife here was huge. Seriously, no words to thank you.”
Rivka F., Lakewood, New Jersey
Cedarhurst, New York
“I never realized how profound and layered my nefesh is and how much I and everyone around me benefits when I simply give her her place to shine. A new world has opened up for me and I’m so excited to explore it. Suddenly, there is joy in the everyday life, there is excitement in just being. Who would have thought that’s possible in this rat race of life in 2023, that I can take pleasure in sitting with a child, in having a conversation with my husband, in talking to Hashem, in being with myself?”
T., Yerushalayim, Eretz Yisrael
“It’s been a new waking up every morning these days! Instead of seeing my difficulties in my relationships, especially social anxieties, as a hurdle, I’m starting to see the gift in them. Instead of finding ways to move away from what’s going on inside, I’m letting myself go there and this work couldn’t have been more relieving. ”
Dina M., Monsey, New York
“Project Kindle helped me get to know my inner parts that had been impacting me so much but I simply didn’t know that they exist or how to deal with them. Since I’ve joined the program, I’ve gained an incredible sense of direction toward my purpose and toward what brings me true joy and menuchas hanefesh. It has turned me into a better wife, mother, and Yid.”
Tami G., Los Angeles, California

Project Light Up Your Home
In this thought-provoking shiur on Wednesday, August 9, Mrs. Shiffy Friedman will share a perspective on parenting that will iyH add depth, meaning, and joy to this central role in our life. And because we want these concepts to get absorbed deep in our heart, not just in our intellect (that’s LAHAV for you!), we will be having a moving musical experience, as well!
If you want to:
*Deepen your connection with your children
*Give your parenting your all
*Find more meaning in this central role in your life
*Bring out the best in your children
It’s not a list of do’s and don’t’s, only a refreshing perspective that will elevate, inspire, and connect us to the incredible parent we already are so that we can give to the neshamos Hakadosh Baruch Hu entrusted in our care from this positive place.
Project Light is a first-of-its-kind interactive seminar on emotional eating, where we explore a fascinating Torah-based approach to finally set ourselves free from this common self-sabotaging practice.
In this interactive 3-hour seminar, we will:
- understand what’s truly keeping us stuck in the habit
- absorb one foundation that’s critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle
(and the reason why we haven’t been successful at it until today)
- learn a powerful, positive approach toward effective change
- explore the impact of this change on our marriage/parenting/relationships
- take an illuminating journey inward
- emerge with soul-nourishing food for thought
Since participant space is limited, early registration is recommended.

A Heartstrings event is sure to leave you feeling uplifted, moved, and rejuvenated.

וידעת היום והשבת אל לבבך
דברים ד: לט
For those who appreciate a rigorous self-exploration and a deeper dive into the workings of the nefesh, this 20-part series delves into the intricate details of emotional wellbeing from a Torah perspective: our strengths, fears, and needs, how they can be filled, and how to unblock the channels of the heart so we can experience true menuchas hanefesh. An insightful, healing experience, Project HEART helps participants understand their nefesh with refreshing self-awareness, thus facilitating more wholesome, fulfilling relationships with others, Hashem, and the self.
*Especially illuminating for women in counseling or chinuch.
