Kennedy was born.

Budding Bonds (0-3 months): Brookline
Budding Bonds: New Moms Group (0 - 3months) - Meet a group of other moms in your area - Talk, listen, laugh, bond Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008! In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions on order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable! After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation and overcoming the challenges of feeding & fussiness. Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor. -When: Six Tuesdays 02/23-03/29  -Time: 11:45am-1:15pm  -Where: Magic Beans, Brookline -Fee: $170 Led By Ashley Oliver. As an assistant manager at Isis Parenting, Ashley discovered her love to work in an atmosphere where you can see both parents and children learn and grow. After witnessing the importance of community support for new moms, she was eager to become a new moms group instructor. As a mom to a wonderful 6 year old, she has a natural compassion for postnatal support. She is cross trained with our own Mommybites instructor Katherine Hudkins, participated in A New Moms Group Facilitator Training, and also works at the Little Lovage Club. She has a BA & MS from Lasell College, years of childcare experience, and has worked in the prenatal and postnatal industry since 2012. Her teaching style is genuine, positive, and has an open understanding to all that comes along with Parenting. What if I have to miss a session? Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms. What Mommybites Moms are Saying: Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure... The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC... I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Bend
Using sand, shadow, and projection, "Bend" tells the story of two men interned in a Japanese American relocation camp during World War II. The first is Robert Maeda (puppeteer Kimi Maeda's father) an Asian Art historian who was only a young boy when he went into the camp. The second man would become the subject of Dr. Maeda's research:Isamu Noguchi, a half-Japanese-half-American sculptor whose work appears in a wide range of spaces and contexts from the giant Red Cube in New York's Financial District to countless lamps, tables, and stone sculptures in private homes. Late in life, Dr. Maeda began working on a book about Noguchi, but as dementia gradually overtook his life, his work was never finished. His daughter, Kimi, was inspired to take on the task he started decades ago, exploring the life of Noguchi in relation to his (and her) own personal history. Using sand as her canvas, Kimi skillfully transforms image after image, combining live feed projection of these drawings with archival footage from WWII. The result is a sublime evening of visual theater that captures the transient, elusive quality of time and memory.

Wendy Mogel, author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee has this to say about Mr. Lieber’s book: “Finally an honest, modern, comprehensive and nuanced book about kids and money.  I ran out of post-its marking pages containing pearls of useful advice.” Since 2008 Ron Lieber has been the “Your Money” columnist for the New York Times. His columns about student loans won the 2011 Loeb Award, business journalism’s highest honor. Prior to 2008, he was the “Green Thumb” columnist for the Wall Street Journal’s Money and Investing section.     Wednesday, June 8th, 7:30 pm--Anat Hoffman Cracks in the City of Stone: struggling for pluralism in modern Jerusalem   Anat Hoffman is a world-renowned Israeli activist and a founding member of Women of the Wall, an organization which fights for women’s equal access to the Western Wall.  Additionally, she is the Executive Director of IRAC (Israel Religious Action Center), the legal and advocacy arm of the Reform Movement in Israel. Today IRAC is the pre-eminent civil and human rights organization in Israel and the leading Jewish organization that advocates on behalf of a broadly inclusive Israeli democracy. Previously, Ms. Hoffman held a seat on the Jerusalem City Council.  In 2013, the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, named her “Person of the Year,” and the Jerusalem Post listed her fifth among its list of 50 Most Influential Jews, noting her role in bringing the issue of women’s rights at the Western Wall to the forefront of the consciousness of world Jewry.  Ms. Hoffman’s talk will focus on the struggle of IRAC to create a more pluralistic Judaism and a more appropriate representation - not only for women, but for all of the city’s inhabitants. Read about Israel's historic development, that Anat Hoffman played a major role in.   Rabbi Sonia Saltzman "I believe in the wisdom and beauty of Judaism and hope to inspire others to deepen their relationship to Judaism by offering opportunities to engage with our sacred texts, to experience the richness of prayer and to build a caring and committed community. TOS Talks is a vital piece in our efforts to grow and learn in our commitment to each other and the outside world. These TALKS serve as a catalyst for conversation within our community and for action that leads beyond the walls of our synagogue."

RenMen 1965
Renaissance Men is Boston's acclaimed male vocal chamber ensemble; delivering impassioned interpretation of men's modal music spanning the centuries. We are thrilled to present one of Boston's most anticiptated concerts of the year for our friends coming to Boston for the American Choral Directors Association Eastern Division Conference. In this retrospective concert, Renaissance Men goes back in time to 1965 and illuminates the parallels from then and now, the progress we have made, and perils we still face. The first set will consist of traditional choral music for men's voices written in 1965, including rarely-heard drinking songs by Franz Biebl, Lennox Berkeley's chilling Three Songs for Four Men's Voices, and a collection of rollicking Estonian folk-songs by Veljo Tormis. The final set will bring RenMen's signature in-house band back together for arrangements of pop hits from that year, from American folk-rock to the British Invasion. The highlight of the evening will be the world premiere of Five Clippings in 1965 by 17-year old phenomenon Charles Stacy III, recently featured in the Boston Globe. The piece, composed specifically for RenMen's nine voices, will comprise of musical settings of articles and advertisements published by the Boston Globe in 1965, addressing topics from the assassination of Malcolm X to the Vietnam War. Cinematic, ethereal, and emotionally gripping, this is sure to be a performance unlike any other heard in New England. We invite you to attend a pre-concert lecture by Renaissance Men Artistic Director Eric Christopher Perry and special guests, and to participate in a talk-back session after the concert with our featured composer, Charles Stacy III.
