5th Annual Smash the Stigma Event:
A Jewish Communal Conversation on Mental Illness & Suicide

IN PERSON, Wednesday, May 31 | 7:00 pm
Following 6:30 pm Evening Services

Held annually during Mental Health Awareness Month and co-sponsored by a consortium of neighborhood synagogues and Jewish institutions, these profoundly important Smash the Stigma events help to raise awareness and facilitate conversation about the difficult realities of mental illness and suicide in the Jewish community.

We hope you’ll join us in support of the 1 out of 5 of us who live with mental illness and the other 4, who are our friends, family, fellow congregants, colleagues, neighbors, and more. These issues affect us all.

This year’s panel will include:

Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann
Mother of a child who struggled with depression and suicidality

Amy Danziger Tenenbaum
Temple Shaaray Tefila
Lost her sister to suicide

Dr. Nava Silton
Marymount Manhattan College
Ohab Zedek
Developmental Psychology Expert

Matt Kudish
Chief Executive Officer
