UPDATED Covid Policy for island Synagogue

Dear Friends and Congregants,

 

We have updated our Healthy Community Campaign Guidelines to recommend a 10-day waiting period after out-of-state travel and indoor socializing, replacing the previous 14-day waiting period. This is our most recent change in light of evolving medical guidance. The 14-day waiting period after a possible exposure remains the same.

Thank you,

Jon Newman

Rabbi Yechezkel Kornfeld

Code To Joy: The World’s Happiest Kept Secret

IT'S A QUESTION that has launched a thousand self-help seminars, a riddle that has perplexed multitudes, a mystery that enthralled the ancients: What is the secret of happiness? Jewish thought has long emphasized the importance of living with joy. But how? And can you really choose to be happy?

This extraordinary course goes beneath the surface to find answers. Synthesizing timeless Jewish wisdom and the latest findings from the field of positive psychology, we look at how wealth, meaning, trust, optimism, regret, faith, introspection, mindfulness, relationships, and ritual all interrelate with our outlook on life. Packed with spiritual insights you can apply to real life, you’ll love every minute of discover-ing the Code to Joy.

We invite you to crack the code and find the key to J-O-Y in every lesson.

Best, 

Devorah Kornfeld
