This session will provide opportunity for using resources such as Jewish text as a springboard for self-reflection, self-evaluation, and self-improvement.  A new way to approach the study of Jewish text will be used to facilitate an open discussion for gleaning insights and self-awareness.  Key questions will be explored such as: How can I improve myself? How can I improve my relations with others? How can I live a more balanced life?
