Hakarat Hatov

Judaism, Gratitude, and You Workshop

In Judaism, the middah (Jewish value) of hakarat hatov is used to emphasize the importance of recognizing the amazing things God has blessed us with in our lives. Not only is hakarat hatov about gratitude, it is also about our attitude toward the world around us.

The experts at The Blue Dove Foundation are focused on education and helping people develop a common language and learn how to talk about mental health. Using Judaism (our text values, holidays and traditions) we will connect to mental health and feel more comfortable talking about a topic that might be more vulnerable for us. We know that not everyone will need clinical or professional mental health support in their lifetime, but we will know someone who does. And we want to help equip people to feel comfortable talking about mental health so they can be the best support systems for themselves and others.  

Presented by Blue Dove Foundation in conjunction with Hamilton Jewish Family Services.
