Baltimore Happiness Club
The Baltimore Happiness Club (BHC), a drop-in support group for anyone who wishes to increase their level of happiness, has been meeting weekly for 1.5 years.
BHC is based on Gateway to Happiness, by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin, and on the premise that happiness is a skill that can be learned. Whereas some people are “born happy,” most of us are not always naturally happy, but we can learn to be.
BHC is an interactive, lively group that uses Rabbi Pliskin and other happiness teachers as sources. Through simple exercises, discussion, and sharing real-life situations, we learn to increase and improve our happiness skills and equip ourselves to be more resilient and, through taking charge of our happiness, to take charge of our lives.

The Faith and Doubt of Holocaust Survivors

Rabbi Dr. Reeve Brenner, Bet Chesed Congregation, Rockville, MD.
February 23, 2014

11:15 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.
Oakland Mills High School, 9410 Kilimanjaro Road, Columbia
Rabbi Brenner’s book on the religious beliefs of Holocaust survivors received enthusiastic reviews when it was first issued in 1997. In February 2014 it will be reissued by Rutgers University Press.

In his visit to Columbia Jewish Congregation, Rabbi Brenner will discuss what he learned about those who survived the Holocaust and how they understood their experiences. Did they continue to believe in God? Did they walk away from the synagogue entirely? The topic is important to all of us who wrestle with how to understand God in light of the sometimes harsh events of our own lives.
