Kulanu Teens: Shabbat Experience

Kulanu Teens: Shabbat Experience


November 21, 2020    
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Type

Attitude of Gratitude: Reminding us to count our blessings, everyday.

Join us this Shabbat as we hear the remarkable and miraculous personal story of survival, as told by Susan Ungerman: Alone at home, Susan was fast asleep after taking medication. Suddenly her house goes up in flames. How was her life spared? Who saved her life? What about her four children, her husband? Where were they? How did they survive?

Together we will hear this motivational story about how this family dealt with a near-death encounter – losing their home, and all their worldly possessions. We will discuss how we get through hard times, such as a global pandemic, where our strength comes from, and how practicing gratitude helps to build resilience.

Also, we’ll talk about ‘white privilege’ and the impact it has on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) individuals; and explore ways we can help others in our world by performing acts of Tikkun Olam.

Join us this Shabbat for a truly motivational and fascinating story … and the life lessons we all can learn from facing tragedy and hardship.
