Positive Religion for All Faiths
While Positive Judaism is our effort, the opportunity for a Positive Christianity, a Positive Islam, and a Positive Buddhism, etc., will be the most important advancement in religion in the modern era. Each tradition contributing their own distinct philosophies, practices, and culture for wellbeing, happiness, and life satisfaction. We are at just the beginning.
The Jewish sages of 2000 years ago asked, “Who is Rich?” They had very interesting answers to this question - some which may surprise you - but may also help you imagine a new way to think about your relationship with money and the the positive ways that you can earn, spend, and use your money to create a happier you and more positive world.
There is a yiddish word that describes a polite, smart, and thoughtful child -- a mentsch -- and who does not want to have a mentch as a child? It takes more than faith, hope and good luck to have a kind and loving child and so I’m going to offer you some fresh ideas about how to raise a mentch by focusing on your child’s strengths and adopting a new framework called Strengths Based Parenting. This approach will help you raise your child’s level of wellbeing and happiness -- and the result will be the mentch you have always dreamed your child would become.
Positive Jewish Prayer
It has been shown that religious people are happier and more satisfied with life than non-religious individuals and that people who participate in religious communities are happier and physically healthier than people with no religious affiliation. In this episode, Rabbi Darren Levine speaks about the role of prayer in raising the level of wellbeing and happiness in life.
