Share Mental Health from the Bima

“I don’t speak because I have the power to speak; I speak because I don’t have the power to remain silent” – Rabbi A.Y. Kook

Talk About Blue Dove Foundation in Your Speech from the Bima, and have it added to our library of Judaism and Mental Health Content. You, your family and attendees can also wear Blue Dove Foundation Mental Health Awareness Kippot to help spread the message even more.

Host a Mental Health Shabbat

“The world has our hands, but our soul and heart belong to Someone Else. Six days a week we seek to dominate the world, on the seventh day we try to dominate the self.” – Abraham Joshua Heschel

Host your own Mental Health Shabbat using our Mental Wellness and Shabbat resources, including a step by step guide to Friday night dinner, and mental health activities to accompany each step!

Host a Hakarot Hatov Gratitude Workshop

Who is rich? He who rejoices in his lot, as it is said: “You shall enjoy the fruit of your labors, you shall be happy and you shall prosper” (Psalms 128:2) – Pirkei Avot 4:1

Ahava BBG #2447 is so excited to be working with The Blue Dove Foundation this year! We feel that especially during the time of the pandemic, bringing awareness to mental health is very important, especially in teens. This is why we decided to partner with The Blue Dove Foundation! Their online 

resources about mental health, as well as their amazing story, and connection to Judaism really interested our chapter, and we wanted to be part of this amazing organization. So far we have already partnered with them for an incredible Havdalah service full of activities, and we can’t wait to continue working with them all year!”

Write an Article About Mental Health and Judaism or do a Special Research Project

Testimony from a Recent Bar/Bat Mitzvah – “I’m a 7th grade student. I have been doing a tzedaka project on addiction and mental health, and I have taken interest in your organization and what you do for Jews with mental health issues. I was wondering if we could set up an interview with one of your staff.
