Brain Health Bootcamp (Thursday, Sep 27, 2018 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

Brainhealth Bootcamp
If you’ve been recently diagnosed, or are recognizing symptoms of early memory loss, we can help maintain and enhance your memory and brain function.

Our program emphasizes memory enhancement through cognitive stimulation, physical exercise, education, and socialization. You will have the opportunity to connect with others who are experiencing many of the same situations you are going through. The fun and meaningful brain and body exercises are conducted in a small group setting and are led by professionals experienced in the field of aging. Research shows brain fitness type activities, along with regular exercise, and social engagement can maintain brain function for a longer period of time in someone with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or other related dementia, compared to someone that does not participate in cognitive, physical and social type activities. Early intervention can help.

Sober Shabbat in Honor of Recovery Month 2018 (Saturday, Sep 29, 2018 9:30 am - 12:30 pm)

SAMHSA has named September Recovery Month; this is an opportunity to celebrate the journey towards recovery, honoring those who are fighting drug and alcohol addiction and mental illness, those who have found recovery, and all those who are affected. 

HAMSA is celebrating Recovery Month with a special Sober Shabbat at Congregation Etz Chaim. This conservative Sabbath service will include a special message from the rabbi and a HAMSA speaker, shining a light on the ways that we can rally around those who are struggling and celebrate the beauty and triumph of recovery.

All are invited to attend! The sermon will be delivered by Rabbi Daniel Dorsch and HAMSA's I&R Specialist, Leslie Lubell, and will include an open discussion following the Torah Service.
