Chanukah & Christmas: Navigating the Holiday Season A parenting conversation featuring author Anita Diamant and Rabbi Lev Baesh
The arrival of Chanukah and Christmas can be an exciting and stressful time in a family's life. Parents (and in-laws) may have different memories, experiences and expectations about what these holidays mean for them. This event is an opportunity to reflect about what is important to you and what values you want to pass along to your children.
Anita Diamant is the acclaimed author of The Red Tent in addition to six books on contemporary Jewish life including How to Raise a Jewish Child and Living a Jewish Life. Her most recent novel is Day After Night.
Rabbi Lev Baesh is a consultant to the Jewish community on issues of diversity and inclusion, as well as works with and supports interfaith couples and families.

More About Edith M. Fox Branch Library & Community Center
Edith M. Fox Branch Library & Community Center is a branch of the Robbins Library. It is open three days a week, and has a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles for adults, young adults as well as children, in addition to newspapers and magazines. Small collections of videos and large type print books rotate from the Robbins Library to the branch on a regular basis. CD-ROM games for children are available to borrow. Infant-toddler programs, pre-school storytimes and sing-alongs are offered.
In 1965, the Robbins Library learned of a bequest from Edith M. Fox for expansion of the East Branch building. In 1969 the building was completed and named for its chief benefactor. The library was closed briefly from July 1989 to June 1990 due to economic constraints, but reopened in July 1990 after Arlington residents voted additional funds in a referendum. In 1994 the building became a library and community center.
