    The workshop is designed to help mental health professionals explore Jewish perspectives on issues they likely encounter in their day-to-day work. Focusing during each meeting on a different topic of importance to mental health and wellbeing, participants will bring their own clinical and personal perspectives into conversation with a range of classical and modern Jewish texts. Topics will include dreams, anxiety, the role of listening in the therapeutic process, and more.

    This season of Drisha’s beit midrash for mental health professionals is open to practitioners at all levels of clinical and professional experience. Clergy with a background in pastoral work are invited to participate as well.

    Throughout the literature of the Chabad movement, from its first written expression in the Likutei Amarim of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi to the writings of the most recent rebbe, a singular vision remains constant: the essential unity of God within the chaotic multiplicity that characterize our limited perception of reality. The teaching of Chabad emphasizes that even what appear to us as fragmentation and darkness is, in its essence, unity and light. Ein od milvado—“there is nothing but God.” We are called upon to transmute our experiences to reflect this reality. In this session, we will explore this calling, focusing on texts from the first Rebbe of Chabad, the Baal haTanya, with commentary from the subsequent six generations.

    The Founding of Polish Chassidut: Rav Elimelech of Lizhensk

    The Founding of Polish Chassidut: Rav Elimelech of Lizhensk

    Price: $ 0.00

    Rav Elimelech of Lizhensk, a founder of Polish chassidut, is also one of the most original and complex of the early chassidic thinkers. Among the tensions explored in his thought – and embodied in his life – is that between love and criticism. He was, in a sense, a “specialist in rebuke,” and yet his prescription of this form of spiritual guidance coexists in his thought alongside an expansive notion of love. In this session, we will explore this interplay between love and rebuke as well as Rav Elimelech’s conception of the “tzadik,” which he describes in his work Noam Elimelech, and for which he is perhaps best known. Finally, we will touch upon the deep influence of Rav Elimelech on his successors in Polish chassidut, in particular the Kotzker Rebbi.

Drisha’s Anniversary Dinner

I learned what it means to bring your whole self to Torah study. This meant challenging myself and others to formulate an idea honestly and with clarity, grappling with an idea within a previously held worldview, bringing every discipline and insight to the table as a potential tool to understanding, and sharing a joy and enthusiasm with the community of students of Torah that surrounded me.
