Wednesday April 24, 2013 @9:00 am, Beit T’Shuvah, 8831 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90034
The program will take place at Beit T’Shuvah, which is the only rehabilitation center in the United States that combines Jewish spiritual principles, the 12 steps of alcoholics anonymous, and psychotherapy. The program will focus on one of Beit T’Shuvah’s most innovative departments, Partners in Prevention. Prevention’s goal is to tear asunder the stigma that good Jewish boys and girls do not become drug addicts, prescribing spiritual progress in place of the pursuit of perfection and self-reflection in place of denial.
The Week of Learning is an interdisciplinary community-wide series of events, lectures, workshops, and experiential classes examining Jewish traditions and their impact on our well being. Events are hosted across the streams of Jewish life by community organizations and synagogues throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. The week opens and concludes with special events hosted by the Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health and Cedars-Sinai.
