What does the field of positive psychology have to do with Judaism? And what does it mean when it comes to engaging young people in Jewish life? Positive psychology applies scientific and empirical methods to many of the spiritual and ethical teachings that are central to Judaism. In this two-part series, learn with Rabbi Rick Schechter about the field of positive psychology and how we can apply it to congregational education, camp settings, and youth programs to ensure the health and happiness of every young person in our community.
