Event Details

Do you ever wonder how life might be different if you felt less anxious?

Anxiety is a thief! It robs us of joy and ease and makes it difficult to be in the present moment. In addition, there are particularly Jewish patterns of feeling anxious.

  1. Rabbi Caryn Aviv’s 5-week Unlearning Jewish Anxiety series will provide you with:
  • A concise and practical guide to how our minds work and how we create unconscious habits, in response to antisemitism, that cause suffering.
  1. An analysis of complex collective, transmitted trauma: how Jews internalize antisemitism and turn those messages on ourselves, one another, and our loved ones and allies.
  2. A tour through three different Jewish anxiety patterns about our safety, worthiness, and belonging in the world.
  3. Jewish wisdom to grow your self-awareness, curiosity, self-compassion, and courage to change.
  4. Thought questions and practical exercises to help you become more aware of what you have learned and internalized.
  5. Helpful tools to notice when you’re in a habit hole of suffering from internalized thought distortions, and most importantly, ways to get out of those habits and find better alternatives that bring you more joy.

This class is a particularly timely tool as many people in our community are feeling a heightened sense of anxiety given the current situation in the Middle East. We invite you to participate and gather practical tools to navigate difficult times like these.
