Five ways to good mental wellbeing & Judaism

בָּעֶרֶב, יָלִין בֶּכִי; לַבֹּקֶר רִנָּה

'Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning’ (Psalm 30:6)

Practising each of the five ways to wellbeing every day can have a very positive impact on your mood and wellbeing. These are also things which are encouraged in the Jewish tradition.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing & Judaism has been designed in collaboration with Jami, in consultation with Rabbi Miriam Berger and Rabbi Daniel Epstein, with the support of The London Jewish Forum, Maccabi GB and the London Borough of Barnet.

You can read the full leaflet here .
