ONLINE — Rabbi Joshua Gray, who is both an ordained rabbi and a mental health professional, will lead a virtual mini-course, "Through a Jewish Lens: Mental Health and Wellness," on Thursday, May 11 and Sunday, May 28 at 5 p.m. This two-session discussion will focus on understanding mental health as a continuum of wellness and how mental health is vital to the well-being of a whole person.
The interactive sessions will examine the prevalence and impact of mental health challenges, signs and symptoms that someone is struggling, how to engage in true self-care, and how to help someone in need. The class will also tackle the issue of historical trauma, which is written into the Jewish experience, incorporating the thoughts of great Jewish thinkers.
The sessions are sponsored by Temple Sholom in Monticello. The fee for the two classes is $12 for Temple members and $24 for non-members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
