Real Men Do Cry: The Kabbalah of Masculine Energy

Do real men cry?

There’s a pervasive myth that real men don’t cry, implying that tears are reserved for women. This notion is not only demeaning, suggesting women are emotional and weak while men are tough and stoic, but it’s also untrue.

Is vulnerability a weakness? Is expressing emotions wrong? Where did this stereotype originate, and why does our culture view honesty and fragility as problems? Why do we idolize toughness and machismo? What does this say about our society?

Our perceptions of men and women, and their roles, are confusing and disturbing. Women are criticized for being too tough when they play by men’s rules, and men are told to suppress their emotions. There’s much to unpack here.

Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in this special program to explore how to reclaim our true masculine and feminine personalities in a healthy way. It’s about improving our personal lives, educating our children properly, and ultimately transforming our society.
