Dear «First Name or Friend»,

 

I am excited to invite you to participate in the first class of the new Simple Truths course. This course is about taking to heart life’s simple truths, the ones that empower us to overcome our everyday struggles; not by facing the challenges one by one, but by finding our center and aligning with our inner truth.

In Simple Truths we grapple with fundamental Jewish viewpoints that profoundly shift our perspective. We train ourselves to see G‑d’s hand in every situation; and, where G‑d is discovered, challenge becomes opportunity, negative becomes positive, setback becomes turning point, and vulnerability and weakness become impetuses for growth and connection. 

See below for the subject of the first class and click  here for more details on the Rosh Chodesh Society and the "Simple Truths" course. Register for the course  here and receive a special gold RCS membership bracelet.

Enjoy soup & salad and light refreshments and the opportunity to catch your breath and socialize. 

(Classes are independent of each other and need not be attended consecutively) 

Thank you, 
Chaya Posner

LESSON ONE 

CLAIM YOUR INHERITANCE

In a sand-swept Sinai some three and a half millennia ago, the Jewish nation received the Torah from G‑d. Ever since, Jews the world over have passionately dedicated themselves to its study. From eras ancient to modern, our people have endured tremendous sacrifices to study Torah, sometimes even surrendering their lives in this pursuit.

What is the value of Torah, and why does Judaism venerate its study above all else? This lesson explores the role of Torah study in Jewish life.

WHERE PLEASURE MEETS PURPOSE 

LESSON TWO 

WHERE PLEASURE MEETS PURPOSE

It is only natural to want to enjoy life’s pleasures. At the same time, all the pleasures on earth cannot satisfy our inner craving for deeper meaning and purpose.

How are we to balance our inner tug toward all things pleasurable with our human need for meaning and spirituality? Are these desires mutually exclusive? Can they ever align in pursuit of a common goal? This lesson explores the intersection of these two potent human needs, to extract secrets to wholesome living from the wellsprings of Jewish teaching.

Welcome to the third class of the new Simple Truths course. This course is about taking to heart life’s simple truths, the ones that empower us to overcome our everyday struggles; not by facing the challenges one by one, but by finding our center and aligning with our inner truth.

Some 40 million American adults, about one in six, are suffering from some kind of anxiety at any given time. How can we cope with this all too common struggle?
This lesson unearths powerful concepts regarding dealing with anxiety and doubt, seeing the value in every moment, and the contrast between G‑d’s creation of the world and mankind's creations. See below for details.

If you haven't attended a Rosh Chodesh Society class in the past, please consider attending this evening's class which is being held in honor of a speedy recovery for my 6 year old granddaughter - Chana bas Mushka. May our collective study turn the tables and bring complete healing.

I hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you,

LESSON THREE 

CREATION REVISITED

We are all creators, made in the image of G‑d, the ultimate Creator. But is the difference between our ability to create and G‑d’s merely a quantitative one?

This lesson unearths foundational principles of Jewish thought regarding G‑d’s creation of the world, unearthing ageless wisdom for reframing our approach to life’s obstacles, dealing with anxiety and doubt, and seeing the value in every moment.

 

 

Welcome to the fourth class of the new Simple Truths course. This course is about taking to heart life’s simple truths, the ones that empower us to overcome our everyday struggles; not by facing the challenges one by one, but by finding our center and aligning with our inner truth.

Imperfection is human, yet little makes us feel worse than our character deficiencies. Our less-than-noble thoughts and feelings lead to inner turmoil and lowered self-perception, hampering our motivation to grow and change.

But what if we tapped into a wonderfully-radical, revolutionary Jewish teaching, looking at a character defect as a calling? This lesson explores how we can re-frame our apparent deficiencies as inspiring pathways to personal growth, inner joy, and spiritual fulfillment.

LESSON FOUR 

 THE BEAUTY OF THE STRUGGLE

Imperfection is human. Yet little makes us feel worse than our character deficiencies. Our less-than-noble thoughts and feelings lead to inner turmoil and lowered self-perception, hampering our motivation to grow and change.

How can we remain motivated toward change and uphold a positive view of ourselves while battling dejection over our constant struggles with our character flaws? This lesson explores how we can reframe our apparent deficiencies as inspiring pathways to personal growth, inner joy, and spiritual fulfillment.

OVERCOMING LIMITATION

LESSON FIVE  

OVERCOMING LIMITATION

To be human is to have an innate desire for greatness—a drive to pursue our noblest dreams, to actualize our highest potential.

In this lesson we will focus on how to capitalize on our strengths. We’ll learn how to draw upon the things about us that are fundamentally good, and transcend our self-perceived limitations to take them to the level of “great”—and, considering the vast reservoir of potential within us, there is never a limit to how great we can become.

LESSON SIX 

 

 

 

 

TO LOVE ANOTHER

The quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our quality of life. But in a world where digital communication and social media are increasingly replacing real-world communication, the capacity to truly connect to others seems more and more like a lost art. How do we cultivate genuine empathy, trust, acceptance, and love in our relationships?

This lesson teaches us how to peel away all of the superficialities that divide us, and we discover what ultimately unites us, allowing us to develop truly deep and fulfilling relationships with others.
