Jewish Spirituality and Mental Health

Mental health is often perceived as a character defect, as a sign of weakness, as a source of shame. What can we learn from our Jewish traditions, and modern psychology to change this narrative in our own community? How does spirituality impact our mental health, as a community and as individuals? Come join the Hineni Connecting Team and the Inclusion Committee of Temple Emunah for a morning of learning and hands-on-exploration on this important topic! Special Guest Speaker Hadassah Margolis, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Worker, and Lead Therapist at McLean's Hospital Spirituality and Mental Health Department will give a talk and lead an interactive program on Sunday, June 23, 10:30 am. This program is free to attend and light refreshments will be served. Please contact Linda Skolnik with questions or to RSVP: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Perek Yomi Study Group

All are invited to join Temple Emunah’s Perek Yomi study group, which meets on a regular basis to read and discuss the Bible. This group meets the first Thursday of the month at 8:00 PM in the Temple Emunah Library. The original perek yomi (daily chapter) concept, promoted by the Conservative movement, was to read one chapter a day, eventually covering the entire
Hebrew Bible. Our group has modified this approach since 30 chapters is too much to discuss in one meeting. It is instead proceeding at a more leisurely pace of about 12 chapters per month. To find out what chapters we are currently reading, contact Larry Marin at (781) 861-7855 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Talmud Study Group

The Temple Emunah Talmud Study Group, led by Dr. I Ely Stillman invites you to join our ongoing study of Tractate Berakhot on Wednesday nights at 8:00 PM in the Temple Library. All who are interested are welcome to join; knowledge of Hebrew is not required, since Dr. Stillman translates all Hebrew source materials during the study group sessions. Dr. Stillman teaches Talmud and rabbinic thought throughout the Boston area; his approach reflects the multi-faceted potential of Torah study, exploring fundamental principals and esoteric concepts within a historical context. He is on staff at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School, where he practices surgical and renal pathology. Click HERE for our 2018-19 Schedule
