The Emotional Well-Being of Mature Adults in the Pandemic
Thanks to a grant from the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project, Temple Etz Chaim is offering several workshops to help people deal with the stresses caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. These two programs are geared to mature adults. People should feel free to attend one or both sessions. There will be an interactive discussion focused on the needs of this segment of our community.
The program will be facilitated by Marjorie Sokoll, the Director of Aging & Spirituality at Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Boston. She has earned degrees in sociology and social work from Boston University and Tel Aviv University respectively, a graduate degree in counseling from Northeastern University, and a certificate of thanatology from the National Center for Death Education. She is a contributor to the book, Blessings for the Journey: A Jewish Healing Guide for Women with Cancer and the author of “The Healing Circle: A New Model for Nurturing Spirituality in Jewish Family Service Agencies” published in the Journal of Jewish Communal Service.
