Jewish organizations and community members play a very important role in advocating for and supporting mental wellness in the Jewish community. During this hour workshop, participants will learn about the connection between mental health and Judaism through text study and Blue Dove’s eight middot (Jewish values). Participants will engage in meaningful conversation around mental health challenges they see in their community and develop an action plan that focuses on supporting mental health in their community, organization, or congregation.
