Join Rabbi Marc Katz, author of The Heart of Loneliness: How Jewish Wisdom Can Help You Cope and Find Comfort, as he discusses the role Judaism plays in alleviating loneliness in our lives and the lives of others. Loneliness is pervasive in our society but is rarely addressed. It comes in many forms, from the loneliness of loss to that of sickness; from single life to marriage to divorce. In fact, even achievement can be an avenue to loneliness. Using stories from the Bible, teaching from our ancient Rabbis, and coupling these with modern psychology, Rabbi Katz will explore concrete ways as individuals and as community members we may help those who are lonely in our midst.
