Beit R'fuah Support Group, Potluck and Discussion With a Special Guest Speaker
Our November meeting will begin with our usual potluck dinner and socializing to be followed by group sharing. For the potluck dinner, please bring healthful vegetarian dishes or salads and fruit for dessert. (Kashrut information: please note that Beth Am serves food "kosher style," which means no pork or shellfish and we do not serve milk and meat in the same dish, such as meat and cheese lasagna. Thank you for observing in this way.)
At this meeting we will also be joined by Chaplain Bruce Feldstein, MD who is founder and director of The Jewish Chaplaincy at Stanford Medicine, and Adjunct Clinical Professor at the School of Medicine. For 18 years, Chaplain Feldstein has provided spiritual care at Stanford’s hospitals, accompanying patients and families on their journey of illness and healing, including those with mental illness. He is widely known as a speaker, author and leader on spirituality and meaning in healthcare. Chaplain Feldstein is also a proud member of Congregation Beth Am.
Beit R'fuah, House of Healing, welcomes all -- Beth Am members or not, Jewish or not -- who are coping with mental illness themselves or who provide support for family and friends who are dealing with mental illness. For more information, email Mental Health.
