Spiritual Support Group for Mental Health Meeting Dates for April

Har HaShem’s Spiritual Support Group, called Refuat Hanefesh, is for people living with mental health issues, their family members and friends. It is a safe, supportive and confidential meeting place. We meet twice a month, on the first and third Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00 pm with the exception of Jewish and National holidays.  The next meeting is Tuesday, April 2, 2019, then Tuesday April 16..

This group is open to all members of the Jewish community. This is a drop-in group though we’ve seen that people who make it a priority to attend regularly tend to get more out of the experience. There is no need to register. There is no cost to participate. Together we will share and hear how faith and a reliance on a Higher Power can be helpful when coping with this disease. We also share methods that help us move through times of difficulty and articulate our sources of hope and strength.

This group is co-facilitated by Rabbi Deborah Ruth Bronstein, Rabbi Emerita at Congregation Har HaShem and Dr. Jed Shapiro, long term psychiatrist in Boulder CO, and meets at Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road in Boulder.

For more information about the group, feel free to email Rabbi Bronstein at drb@harhashem.org.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
