“Connectivity and Diversity: Learning From Disaster Resilience” w Rabbi Dr. Daniel Aldrich
“Happiness: Balancing Work Life and Personal Life” w Jacob Freedman, MD
Dr. Freedman will be speaking about his experiences as a psychotherapist and the importance of achieving balance between one’s work and their personal life. He will not be speaking about your relationship with your mother, analyzing your dreams, or discussing what a cigar may or may not symbolize. Dr. Freedman will be reflecting on his vast experience helping people through psychiatry and a hollistic approach to living happier more meaningful lives. Dr. Freedman is an accomplished board-certified psychiatrist practicing in Boston, Massachusetts and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine.
“Keeping Your Edge in Life” w Rabbi Carter Schwartz
Whether one is dealing in matters of love, war, or the soul, there are strategies by which one can get ahead of the game and stay ahead. We’ll discuss a few of these approaches as they relate to various aspects of life and particularly to the High Holidays. Rabbi Carter Schwartz received his BA in History from the University of Pennsylvania and his rabbinic ordination from top scholars at the Great Mir Yeshiva.
