The J.O.Y. Club is back with its first program of the 2022 Season. We will try something that’s a little different. In these difficult, polarizing times we will delve into the complicated and difficult topic of interacting with others when we disagree with them. We will explore the basis of why we should treat others with respect and how to enter conversations that include topics that may trigger us. Using the radio program “This I Believe” as a model, we will look to find common ground in some core beliefs knowing that the goal is not to persuade others to agree on the same beliefs, but to encourage people to develop respect for beliefs different from their own.
The leader for this program is our very own Tami Arnowitz. Tami is the wonderful wife of our wonderful Rabbi, Jeffrey Arnowitz. She has a BA in economics from Wellesley College and an MBA from Columbia Business School. Tami has also studied at Hebrew University and The Conservative Yeshiva. She has been an educator at Camp Ramah for 6 summers where she has taught on a range of topics. She has adapted these classes to be taught to adults. She has successfully conducted such talks as “This I Believe” at Hadassah, JCC, and other Jewish organizations.
We will meet in-person in the Activity Room at the WJC from 11:00am – 12:30pm for a stimulating interactive session. A buffet lunch will follow.
