Temple Beth Sholom presents: Jews Don’t Do Drugs and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves, a two-part series on addiction and recovery in the Jewish community. Since the pandemic began, opioid overdose and alcohol-related deaths have increased exponentially among kids and adults. We need to address this issue, NOW, as a community.

The speakers are Rabbi Igael (Iggy) Gurin Malous, founder and CEO, and Ben Litchman, Chief Creative Officer of the T’Shuvah Center, an intentional, spiritual recovery center for all those suffering from substance use and process disorders.

Session 1:
Monday, March 27, 7:30 pm
Shonda, Shame and Schnapps: Addiction in the Jewish Community and Beyond, What we need to know and how to respond to it.

Session 2:
Date TBD
Jewish Recovery: Connection, Community, Spirituality and Accountability, Ancient texts and the modern Jewish answers to addiction.
