Spirituality and Healing

Spirituality and healing Looking to learn how Jewish wisdom can help you during challenging times in your life? Look no more!

For 3000 years, people have found comfort, solace, and sustenance in the stories of the Torah. It is a ‘tree of life’, a vast treasure trove of spiritual resources, both individual and communal. Using Jewish wisdom and tradition, these groups will discuss the Torah’s profound insights and help those seeking wholeness, calm, and connection, as well as help those looking for personal growth or healing.

Current Group: MIDRASH: RETELLING YOUR STORY, REFRAMING YOUR LIFE!

In this four week group, we will study the great characters from the Torah in order to understand
the skills the Rabbis used to reframe and interpret their stories.

Through learning this ancient and deeply Jewish skill, we can make our own lives and all that has happened to us and our families, more meaningful, clearer and more joyous.

Four Fridays, 12:00 noon – 1:00 PM,  November 13th , 20th and December 4th and 11th
Facilitators: Rabbi MJ Newman, Jewish Chaplain at Greenwich Hospital
Lisa-Loraine Smith, LCSW, Executive Director of JFS

Fee: Participation is free but donations are gratefully accepted.

Location: Greenwich Hospital Chapel
