Tim Bono, a psychologist and faculty member in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, will discuss “The Science of Happiness” with staff who work throughout the St. Louis Jewish community on May 22.

Bono is a nationally recognized expert on the subject of happiness and has won several teaching awards. Thousands of students have taken his popular courses on the Psychology of Young Adulthood and the Science of Happiness.

Bono will be joined by Rabbi Yaakov Silverman, a rabbi, teacher, and director of St. Louis Torah & Turf. Rabbi Silverman is recognized for his engaging style and ability to bring Torah wisdom to those from all backgrounds.

Bono and Rabbi Silverman will explore how current psychological research aligns with Jewish values and what staff members in the Jewish community can take away for their own well-being and to benefit those they serve through our jobs.

In addition to the interactive learning with Professor Bono and Rabbi Silverman, there will be five break-out groups: yoga with Carly Alves; healthy eating with Cyndee Levy; small-group learning with Rabbi Silverman; small-group discussion with Professor Bono; and craft activity with Kol Rinah ECC teachers.

The event will begin at 4 pm at WashU Hillel, 6300 Forsyth, in Clayton.
