High Holy Days

[vc_row fullwidth=”true”][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”4004″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_cta h2=”L’shanah tovah tikateivu v’teichateimu”]With 5781 in the rear view mirror, and a (hopefully) brighter 5782 on the horizon, we are beginning to see the impact of mankind’s experiences in the pandemic on our mental health. Now, as the new year begins, let us reaffirm our commitment to mental health and wellness. Both for ourselves and for our communities.

A conversation on mental health can bring forth powerful connections with the potential to save someone’s life. To help start people talking, we created these for individuals to reflect upon and improve their own mental health as well as to contribute to the mental wellness of the Jewish Community as we look forward to a sweet new year.[/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1628616994180{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Rosh Hashanah is a powerful and transformative holiday, from the inspirational and poetic prayers we recite to the powerful and incisive blast of the shofar. This experience, however, cannot be fully embraced in a safe and healthy way without preparation, and for that, we have the month of Elul preceding the High Holidays. We encourage you to take this month to fully embrace and engage with your past with courage. It is only by building better selves that we can build a better world.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1628617004709{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, can be a challenging subject for a lot of people. For some, it is like a chance to make resolutions, accepting our the past and committing to a better future. However, for those struggling with mental illness, this process of self-criticism and introspection can be devastating to their mental health. That is why we all must do our best to cultivate self-acceptance, and above all, self-forgiveness, and develop those feelings in a healthy and collected manner.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_mini_callout title=”Help Us Support Those Struggling with Mental Illness in the New Year and Receive a Free Gift!” button_text=”Learn More” button_url=”https://thebluedovefoundation.org/elul-fundraising-campaign/”][/mk_mini_callout][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”4009″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=3971″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”4012″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=3972″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”4010″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=3976″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner is_fullwidth_content=”false”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D3971|target:_blank”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D3972|target:_blank”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D3976|target:_blank”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”4011″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=3977″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2160″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=2256″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2144″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://www.thebluedovefoundation.org/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=2258″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner is_fullwidth_content=”false”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D3977|target:_blank”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D2256||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebluedovefoundation.org%2F%3Fsmd_process_download%3D1%26download_id%3D2258||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1628616692620{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]These resources can be used by individuals and/or shared by organizations with their members.

High Holiday Guide for Organization Leadership

This is a resource that can be used by organization leadership (clergy, staff, lay leaders) to help bring mental health into High Holiday remarks this year.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1597863644535{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]“Last year, while wearing a Blue Dove kippah at our Jewish High Holidays services, I spoke about the Blue Dove Foundation and discussed mental health, suicide and addiction for the first time in front of my congregation. Many people came up to me at the end of services; it was the first time in 23 years that people shared with me their mental health and addiction stories as well as speaking about the overdose deaths of children and family members. I’m glad I shared the resources and that I used the mi sheberach prayer for those in recovery.”
