Rabbi Liberman Will Present at Mental Health Conference

Rabbi Lynn Liberman

JFS Community Chaplain Rabbi Lynn Liberman will present a workshop at the 19th Annual Mental Health Education Conference, Sunday, October 20 from 10AM to 4PM at Temple Israel.

“The Wholeness of Being: Caring for Our Spiritual Self” is intended for those of faith, little faith or no faith who are looking for ways to care for their spiritual well-being, whether for themselves or their loved ones.

A recent Pew report indicates that formal religion, the kind that takes place inside a house of worship, or with rituals or at certain times and in certain ways, has been steadily diminishing in recent years. Yet 61 percent of the respondents who rarely or never attend say religion is at least somewhat important in their lives.

Participants will consider these questions: do spiritual concerns affect our capacity to heal when facing challenging crises or circumstances; and what does it mean to pray, meditate or chant as part of your personal practice of well being or healing?
