Rabbi Simkha Weintraub discusses intimate ties between religion, spirituality, & the family at upcoming conference for Social Workers
Rabbi Simkha Y. Weintraub, LCSW
Intimate ties between religion, spirituality, and the family are an empowering source of strength for some New Yorkers. Our May 10 Social Work and Religious Diversity conference will start off by exploring “The Religious Lives of New York Families” through discussions of Jewish, Christian, Hindu, and Muslim family life.
On the first panel of the day, we will hear from Rabbi Simkha Y. Weintraub, LCSW, the Rabbinic Director of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. He leads workshops on Jewish spiritual resources for living with illness, loss, and trauma; develops training seminars for rabbis and health care professionals; and has written and lectured widely on the use of traditional Jewish texts and practices in spiritual healing. An adjunct lecturer in Pastoral Skills at the Jewish Theological Seminary, he helped to design and now teaches in the Post-Master’s Certificate Program in Spirituality and Social Work at NYU’s Silver School of Social Work. He also maintains a private practice in couples and family therapy.
Social Workers and mental healthcare professionals are encouraged to register for this one day conference. Continuing Education Credits are available for New York State LMSWs and LCSWs.
