Rabbi Mordechai Dinerman is co-director of the curriculum department at the Jewish Learning Institute and oversees the production of its courses. He has authored, edited, or otherwise participated in the creation of more than twenty JLI courses, including Life in the Balance (Jewish Medical Ethics), How Happiness Thinks (Positive Psychology), Great Debates in Jewish History, The Dilemma (The Talmud and Comparative Law), and Paradigm Shift (The Philosophy of the Lubavitcher Rebbe).
This session will use Jewish perspectives on trauma, loss, and consolation, to con-sider the psychological challenges that such situations present. The wisdom of Jew-ish approaches in providing comfort and steering us towards healthy adaptations will be highlighted, in the face of psychological research. This lecture took place at the 12th annual National Jewish Retreat
