Join this panel discussion to learn how and why mental health matters in both traditional and contemporary Judaism. The session will begin with Denise, who will lead us in an exploration into the wisdom of our teachers as it relates to mental health. We will then take you into the world of practical application as we see what Judaism has to say about the mental health of both the individual and the community. In supporting the individual, Noah Tile will take us on a journey to discover gratitude, and how we can apply it as a way of life and practice. Rabbi Torczyner will then take us outwards, in helping us understand the great power and responsibility of the community to support mental health. 

The hope is that through this session, we will come away with a deeper and more grounded approach to improving the quality of our life and relationships, with God, our community and ourselves.
