Anxiety, Depression, and Judaism

  • Temple Jeremiah 937 Happ Rd, North Happ Road Northfield, IL, 60093 United States (map)

Join Temple Jeremiah, Jewish Child and Family Services and No Shame on U for a networking breakfast for professionals in the field of mental health.  The morning will begin with an opportunity to learn with Rabbi Paul Cohen on the topic of mental health and Judaism.  Rabbi Cohen will focus on how Jewish text and sources relate to depression and anxiety.  We will begin to answer what does the text say? What spiritual aspects of Judaism can help or hinder people seeking help? As well as how can Clergy and the community play a positive role in working together to support and empower individuals and families in need.

Rabbi Paul Cohen,
Senior Rabbi of Temple Jeremiah, D.Min., D.D.
