Combating Compassion Fatigue – the Jewish Answer to “What’s Next?”

Closely following the holiday of Tisha B’Av, we observe Tu B’Av – the day we traditionally celebrate love, marriage and the continuation of life. This pairing of suffering with recovery and resilience is crucial to the survival of the Jewish people, and this cycle can teach us much about how we can cope and persevere in our own lives today. It can also be an opportunity to explore how we can cope and persevere and take care of ourselves when supporting the people we love becomes too much for us.
