Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Weight Loss Workshop

Monday, September 15 7PM at TBA ( ten week session $10 per week)

Have you tried many times to lose weight and keep it off? Are you sick of fad diets? Are you overwhelmed by the copious amounts of weight loss information? You are not alone. Most dieters have tried over and over again to reach their weight loss goals with poor and disappointing results. Why? Because they have never learned how to “think” about food in an appropriate and healthy way. This workshop, based on the “Beck Diet Solution”, is a cognitive-behavioral approach to dieting. This is different because it focuses on the psychological factors that cause weight gain and obesity. Cognitive Treatment will teach you the skills you need to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight for your lifetime by teaching you how to:

Respond to and re-frame thinking errors that sabotages healthy choices

Rabbi’s Message for September 2014
avatar

The war between Israel and Gaza has been horrific, as has the violence across the Middle East. One vital response is to show our support in whatever ways we can. In addition to that, let us gather as a strong and supportive Jewish community to pray, to reflect, and to be among friends.

This is certainly a special new year as we welcome members from Temple Shalom, and we are grateful to everyone involved in making the merger process a success. Growing and deepening relationships will strengthen our community, which is why we are enhancing our holiday services and programs in the following ways:

  • Shacharit (morning) services will now match how we do them on Shabbat and other holidays. We will have an Amidah—or central prayer—that will begin out loud and then provide time for silent reflection, instead of a full silent prayer and full repetition, which was customary on the High Holidays in the past. This means that the Torah service will begin about 20 to 30 minutes earlier (around 9:20 a.m.), and that the service should end around the same time as our youth service (around noon).
  • Our children will now join us for the end of the service followed by a communal Kiddush, including apples and challah with honey—and a chance to schmooze with friends, new and old.
  • On Rosh Hashanah afternoon at 3:30, Cantor Grossman and I will lead a family service geared towards children ages 0 – 6, which is open to the greater community. If you know of families that might be interested, please let them know.
  • This family service will be followed by Tashlich (ritual casting away of our “sins”) at Dane Street Beach, another opportunity for spiritual reflection followed by schmoozing.

May this year be filled with more blessings for us, for our community, for the Jewish people, and for the world.

L’shanah tova umetukah. Chuck, Leo and I wish you a sweet new year.
