Dealing with Difficult Situations 
Monday, September 30 12:00 – 1:00pm
Leb by Bonnie Slavitt
This year’s session will highlight new situations where we encounter difficulty in our lives.  We will then look at some new and creative ways of handling these issues. Participants will leave with a list of slogans and tools that they can readily use.  Even if you went to last year’s session, you will still get a lot our of this one.

Languages – Jewish and American
Wednesday, October 9 
11:00am – 12:00pm
Led by Bonnie Slavitt
As Jews in modernity, we possess several “languages,” and several identities, defined largely by gender, age, nationality and religion.  In this session, we are focusing on two: Jewish and American.  We will look at how we negotiate this cultural bi-bilingualism in our country. Given a world of choice, why should we continue to choose to be Jews?
