Increasing in Happiness: Month-Long Jewish Laughter Retreat

Hosted By: ZIVUG

The Talmud teaches that with the beginning of the month of Adar, we are encouraged to increase our happiness (marbim b’simchah). How do we cultivate joy in the midst of isolation, loss, and fear? Laughter, Torah’s living wisdom, and community.

For the month entire Jewish month of Adar, Rabbi Getzel Davis and Laughter Coach Shimon Darwick will offer thrice weekly laughter Torah sessions.
