Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD

Hosted By: Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale

Anxiety is among the most widespread challenges for today’s children and adolescents – and their parents. Join Professor Eli Lebowitz of the Yale Child Study Center – a researcher, author, clinician, and parent, for an exploration of the nature of anxiety, its meaning, and its treatment. As always, Rabbi Jason Rubenstein will guide the conversation between the intellectual and the personal, drawing out points of contact between Judaism and our emotional challenges, and those of our children.

Rabbi Jason Rubenstein

From 2008-2018, Jason taught on the faculty of the Hadar Institute, working to create classrooms, conversations, and communities that bring Torah to life by drawing on the fullness of students’ lives. In addition to rabbinic ordination, Jason holds an AB in Social Studies from Harvard College and a Masters in Talmud from JTS. He is also the recipient of numerous awards including the Wexner Graduate Fellowship and the Covenant Foundation’s 2015 Pomegranate Prize for Emerging Educators.
