Jewish Psychology: Pathways to New Possibilities in Your Life’s Journey

Join us as we welcome guest speaker Dr. Maya Avinadav who will discuss how Judaism provides a profoundly textured view of human nature. The emerging field of Jewish Psychology reflects a Jewish understanding of the complexities inherent to the human psyche and offers new approaches and models to achieve a deeper understanding of life’s challenges and struggles within our modern context. Utilizing Jewish sources and concepts, this program will engage its participants to think about their personal, professional, familial, and communal lives, applying Jewish Psychology to offer novel approaches, methods, and models as paths for personal change, growth, and healing.
