Join UJA as we welcome home Dr. Becky Kennedy, renowned clinical psychologist, social media sensation, and Scarsdale native. Over the past two years, Dr. Becky has established a following of millions on Instagram, inspiring parents of all generations to embrace her parenting philosophy and earning herself the title of “parenting whisperer.” Hear about Dr. Becky’s amazing journey and get an exclusive sneak peek into her first book GOOD INSIDE: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be (on the eve of its release).
Dr. Becky will be joined in conversation by Lindsay Weinberg, founder of DohLife.
You'll also hear how UJA is standing strong for our community — in crisis and every day.
This event is intended for women who give a gift of $360 or more to UJA's 2023 Annual Campaign.
If you can't join us for this event, you can catch Dr. Becky in conversation with Zibby Owens at UJA in Manhattan on October 25.

Dr. Becky is a clinical psychologist and mom of three, named “The Millennial Parenting Whisperer” by Time magazine, who’s rethinking the way we raise our children. She specializes in thinking deeply about what’s happening for kids and translating these ideas into simple, actionable strategies for parents to use in their homes.
When it comes to playdough, Lindsay Weinberg doesn’t believe it’s just for kids. Lindsay, a working mom of two, discovered a knack for making intricate artwork out of the nostalgic compound, with subjects ranging from pop-culture icons to favorite foods. Through Instagram, Lindsay began sharing not only her playdough art with the world, but also her comedic take on parenting and real-life moments. She also shares her passion for creativity with children by offering classes, birthday parties, and virtual events. Along with her family, Lindsay has been involved with UJA for the past decade.
