Past programs…

“When the month of Adar begins we increase in joy!”

Why? because we celebrate the holiday of Purim (March 24) during Adar. On this leap year Adar, the month of joy and happiness is not one, but two months! A double Adar, I and II, double the fun.
On Purim we are “commanded” to be happy and have fun. But what if we don’t feel like it? I think that is why we are “commanded.” So we do it even when, or especially when, we don’t feel happy. It is a practice!
I previously shared about setting the right conditions for living the life we want, instead of setting goals. Happiness is closely relates to it and works in a similar way. Setting the conditions and having reminders for happiness in place are key to experiencing happiness.
We know from studies that smiling and laughing, even for no reason at all, changes how we feel. When we engage in smiling and laughing we set the physical, chemical, and neural conditions to feeling happier.          Enjoy! Rabbi Sigal

Thank you for a wonderful COMMUNITY Hanukkah Gathering!
