 Toward A Meaningful Life

Course Overview
The objective of this course is to teach and empower individuals of all back­grounds with new life skills based on Jewish Thought and Kabbalistic Insight, thereby enabling each to transform the way they view their daily lives. The course offers an antidote to the monotony and grind of unchanging routines. It pro­vides newfound energy and exhilaration in taking on challenges. And it offers practical strategies for developing a deeper sense of joy and satisfaction.
The course covers the spectrum of life, considering personal growth, relationships, home, work, special challenges, and the role of G‑d and faith. We will reframe these universal and familiar issues in a compelling way, inviting students to challenge their current views and consider a more meaningful approach to the topic. Each lesson con­cludes with a toolbox of exercises and guidelines to help students make full use of the ideas and strategies discussed.

Work and Wealth

We’ll explore the ins and out of job satisfaction, as well as ways to put money in its proper perspective and keep materialism from overpowering our G‑d-given, spiritual natures.
Pain and Anxiety

We'll explore ways of coping with stress and difficulty, finding a balance between grieving for what has been lost and feeling hope for the future.
Religion and Faith
