How to Comfort and Be Comforted: A 5 Step Plan to Building Empathy

One of the greatest challenges in life is how to rebuild after loss, how to reclaim dignity after we’ve been violated, how to experience rebirth after we’ve been traumatized, how to find resolution after something may have been destroyed.

Tonight is Tisha B’Av, the saddest day in the Jewish calendar, when the Temple was destroyed. This day represents and personifies destruction on all levels, global, communal and personal.

However, the good news is that within the destruction and within the challenges, lies the birth of hope, reconciliation and building something even greater that what was there before.

Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in this vital conversation on how to comfort others and how to be comforted yourself. Discover the 5 R’s – five steps to build empathy: Reconnect. Recognize. Rebirth. Rebuild. Renewal.
