As part of the PTS Caring Community, Sholom in the Home, and our newly launched Panim-el-Panim initiative, we are inviting you to be a part of the conversation on mental health and mental illness.
Let’s Talk: Mental Health is like a book club, but you may see different people each time you come. And instead of discussing a full book, we will have multiple short articles, essays, TED Talks or podcasts to ignite the conversation. Discussions are facilitated by David Korth and assisted by Lauri Pasch, co-hosted by Judy Cohn and Marci Benson.
Monday, Feb. 6, 7:00-9:00 pm
This discussion is for people who have lost a parent in the past two years. We will be telling our stories, learning about Jewish insights on grief to process recent loss with others in our community.

The PTS Mission
Whether in the synagogue, each other's homes, or the world beyond, Peninsula Temple Sholom creates a sacred space for those who are part of it.
We live Jewish values and apply the wisdom of our teachings to modern life through prayer, study and action.
We sustain Jewish culture through communal engagement in lifecycle events, the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, and the pleasure of laughing and learning together.
We strengthen our community by caring for one another and the world around us.
We honor our heritage and build a strong future by fostering connections with the Jewish people in the U.S., in Israel and around the world.
