JCC Speaker Luncheon - January

Jewish Italy: the Most Ancient Minority presented by Saskia Ziolkowski, Duke University.

Jews in Italy are often referred to as “the most ancient minority,” because of their continuous presence in Italy, from pre-Christian times to today. This talk outlines some of the distinctive features of “Jewish Italy,” including its history, food, art, literature, and cultural traditions, to investigate what “Jewish Italy” might mean. From The Merchant of Venice to The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, literature has played an especially prominent role in understandings of Jewish Italy.

JFS Senior Connections: Redefining Aging (and how positive thinking can help)

For many older adults, negative cultural stereotypes about aging influence how we think and feel about getting older. The impact of negative thinking often affects us emotionally and inhibits our true potential. There are certain realities about growing older we cannot change. However, there is much we can do to redefine what it means to be older and live productively.

Join Abby Palmer MSW, JFS Senior Services Social Worker to explore how ageism affects us as we grow old. We will focus on the benefits of redefining aging, being proactive and thinking positively.

Maimonides Society: Physicians Connecting to Each Other Despite a Culture of Isolation

Description:  In this time of technologic dependence, productivity pressures and diminished personal contact physicians across the country seem more isolated from one another.  This mirrors what is happening more generally in our society and which appears to be particularly acute among healthcare providers. This seems to be a key factor for physicians, where stress, overwork and lack of balance in life may contribute to burnout, depression, substance abuse and possibly suicide.  The instilled physician culture spawns reluctance to talk about our doubts, mistakes and stresses with each other leaving us feeling very much alone.

How can we best provide connection and support for each other?

Please join us in this discussion facilitated by Chris Mauro, PhD.

Dessert & Coffee will be served.

Generously Hosted at the Home of Drs. Elizabeth & Michael Ross

(Address will be provided after we receive your registration.)

The Maimonides Society is an affinity group of the Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary comprised of doctors, residents and medical students in Wake County.
