TWO MORE ELI TALKS ON GRATITUDE AND HAPPINESS:


Jewish Perspectives on Happiness
What makes us happy? Dr. David Pelcovitz delves into the intersections of the secular view of happiness and the Jewish view of happiness (simcha). He uses the examples of goal setting, mindfulness, and gratitude to demonstrate how current research in positive psychology aligns with old Jewish wisdom on happiness.

Happiness and Jewish Identity
Jews often see ourselves as neurotic, cynical, and even tragic. Our history, our stories, and the media would have you think that we just can’t help it. But Olga Gilbert has another idea. Judaism offers a wealth of resources for seeing and cultivating the happy in life even during the hard times. Cynical still? Just watch.
