JFS Senior Connections: Letting Go and Moving On

Older adults often face unique challenges that affect their physical and mental health. You may confront negative stereotypes about aging that have been shown to directly affect health and function.  Holding on to resentments into old age can also result in mental and physical damage over time.    

The good news is that positive thinking skills and proactive strategies can offset the negative impact of ageism and help you let go of resentments.

One of the most infamous instances of American antisemitism is General Ulysses S. Grant’s 1862 General Order Number 11, which banned “Jews, as a class” from the Department of Tennessee. This presentation will revisit this language of southern Jews “as a class” in historical context, showing how Jews and non-Jews alike struggled to categorize Jews in a region – and a nation – dominated by Protestant religion and a rigid racial binary.

JFS Chanukah Gift Drive Collection

2019 JFS Chanukah Gift Drive! 

Shine a light for a child! 

Raleigh-Cary Jewish Family Services will again be organizing a gift drive to benefit families and individuals in the Jewish community  

who are facing economic and social challenges. 

Last year JFS and the Jewish community provided a happier Chanukah for over 25 families and over 30 individuals with gifts, gift cards and prepared Chanukah meals!  

With your help, we can reach these families and more in our community. 

I would like to take this opportunity and invite you all to help JFS identify families within the Jewish community who might be in need of additional support during the holiday season as well as encourage community members to participate in this year’s JFS Chanukah Gift Drive.

The Navel of the Dream: Freud and/in Yiddish

  • UNC-Chapel Hill Friday Center Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This lecture explores the role of Yiddish in Freud’s writings and in the reception and translation of psychoanalysis. Was Yiddish, as the French psychoanalyst Max Kohn suggests, the “unconscious” of Freud’s German works? Were Yiddish translations a minor episode in the dispersion of psychoanalysis, or do they have a special place in this history, as the “lost originals” of Freud’s German writings?

Professor Naomi Seidman is the Chancellor Jackman Professor of the Arts in the Department for the Study of Religion and the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto, and a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow.

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience” (James Beard). With this idea in mind, through our Cooking with Rachael: Around the World Dinner Series, we will explore the foods, flavors and history of the Jewish diaspora stopping off in a different country each time. We will make and enjoy vegetarian (with gluten free and vegan options in many cases) dishes inspired by the traditional dishes of each country. On this exciting and tasty journey we will be reminded that while our cuisines may taste different, they share many common elements, among them the intention to nourish not just our bodies but also our spirits. There is a seat for everyone at the table, so grab your passport and let’s go eat around the world!
