Inclusion Shabbat

April 6, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Temple Emanuel and its B’Tselem Inclusion Committee welcome Hadassah Margolis, MSW, LICSW as our Shabbat speaker.

Mental health is often perceived as a character defect, as a sign of weakness, as a source of shame. What can we learn from our Jewish traditions and modern psychology to change this narrative in our own community? How does spirituality impact our mental health, as a community and as individuals?

Shabbat Sermon, 9:30 am
Maybe if we don’t talk about it, it will go away

Post-Kiddush session
What happens when we talk about it
A hands-on exploration of spirituality and mental health
