About the Event

What you get:

  • Connect with Community: Engage with other Jews who can relate and support you in a shared space.
  • Validation and Support: Feel acknowledged and validated for the trauma and repercussions of October 7th, specifically for adult Jews living in North America.
  • Safe Space: Openly discuss your ancestors’ pain and suffering in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
  • Biological Insights: Gain a deeper understanding of the biology behind intergenerational trauma.
  • Behavioral Understanding: Learn how "weird" anxious or depressed behaviors can be primal defense mechanisms.
  • Guided Practices: Experience guided exercises to help you reground when overwhelmed by big emotions.
  • Calming Tools: Learn practical tools to work with your body to calm down more effectively.

What It Is:

  • Identity and Trauma: A space to acknowledge and address the trauma related to your Jewish identity, including ancestral trauma and personal experiences of antisemitism.
  • Voluntary Sharing: While sharing is encouraged, there is no expectation or requirement to share personal details.
  • Respecting Privacy: If you choose to share, you will not be expected to share intimate details of your personal or family history.

What It’s Not:

  • No Kvetch-Fest: This is not a place for comparing war stories or one-upping experiences of antisemitism.
  • Not for Immediate Crisis: This workshop does not provide tools for those in acute crisis situations.
  • Not Therapy: This is an educational workshop, not a therapeutic session. No prior experience in therapy is necessary.
  • No Professional Training: This workshop is not a professional training and does not offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) at this time.

Embrace the opportunity to understand and address the unique aspects of trauma within the Jewish community.

Time commitment: Two hours
