    Essential Oil Workshop: Lower Your Stress, Be More Productive

    COVID-19 has turned our work lives upside down. And many of us now working from home find it’s a real challenge to focus and and be productive. The last eight months have also brought stress and increased anxiety. Are you worrying more than usual? Is your anxiety manifesting physically? Belly aches? Sleeping issues? Heart palpitations? Is it disrupting your home/work life and making you feel overwhelmed and depressed?

    With Amy Galper, founder of the New York Institute of Aromatherapy, we'll discuss how the holistic nature of essential oils can have a profound effect on how we respond to the stress and anxiety we all face on a daily basis. She'll share practical and effective essential oil tips and tools, and highlight specific oils that have been shown to reduce anxiety. We'll also learn easy and actionable tips on how to use essential oils while at your desk, to improve focus and help you get your work done.

    The cost of this workshop includes an essential oil kit, which will be sent to you prior to the program. Please register by November 27 to receive your kit in time for the program.

    Other Israel Film Festival: Objector + Image of Victory

    Join JCC Manhattan for a live virtual Q+A for Objector and Image of Victory. We will be joined by Objector director Molly Stuart, Objector producer Amitai Ben-Abba, and Image of Victory director Adi Mishnayot. Learn more and register here.
     
    Objector: Like all Israeli youth, Atalya is obligated to become a soldier. Unlike most, she questions the practices of her country’s military, and becomes determined to challenge this rite of passage. Despite her family’s political disagreements and the possibility of social backlash and imprisonment, she refuses military duty and takes a stand for justice. Image of Victory: In 2014, Israel is at war in Gaza. Uri, a wounded Israeli soldier, is rushed to the hospital where he finds himself unwillingly turned into a war hero. A critical look into the Israeli perceptions of glorification of war and heroism.

    Virtual Women's Well Circle for 20s + 30s: Tevet

    JCC Manhattan's monthly Well Circle is intended to be a consistent community where we will bring together the practice of wellness and holiness, with the intention of learning about yourself while cultivating meaningful relationships within your community, and uncovering personal connections to inherited wisdom and rituals.
    Inspired by Rosh Chodesh, the ancient Jewish ritual in which women traditionally gather to mark the new moon/ the first day of each Hebrew month. Each gathering will provide a safe space to share, find clarity and create as a group. The gatherings will be uniquely crafted and inspired by the moon's phases/Jewish month's themes.
