The Pursuit of Happyness

Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder

Who doesn’t experience sadness, melancholy, or depression from time to time? I think most of us do. But do we have a way to talk about it, and people to talk about it with?

Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder of Aish Kodesh, with his wife, Ketriellah, will be offering a weekly gathering and support group for people who struggle with issues around depression. The Goldfeders will provide a safe environment, and a bowl of homemade soup, to give participants an opportunity to express and explore their own experiences with these issues. And we will also learn important lessons and practices from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, who offered very specific guidance toward reaching what he considered the highest ideal and the greatest necessity: “It is a great mitzvah to be happy always.”

Rabbi Goldfeder has been studying and practicing Rebbe Nachman’s work for 15 years. Ketriellah is a certified Hakome practitioner. And she makes a great soup.

Tuesdays, starting October 23rd. Contact rabbi@boulderaishkodesh.org for details and location. Donations accepted but not required.
