The Orthodox Union Department of Community Engagement and OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services will present a conference for Queens and Long Island rebbetzins on Tuesday, July 29 at 8 p.m. at Congregation Nachlas Yitzchok, 141-43 73rd Ave, Kew Gardens Hills. Program is complimentary, refreshments will be served.
Dr. Chana Renov, Ph.D, clinician at OHEL and a therapist in private practice, will deliver the presentation on “Issues of Anxiety: Normal and Necessary vs. Dysfunctional and Dangerous.” She will discuss how rebbetzins can recognize symptoms of anxiety in congregants, family members, and oneself as well as raising awareness of treatment options and basic tools that can help provide relief.
Rebbetzin Judi Steinig, Associate Director of Community Services at the OU’s Department of Community Engagement, commented, “Rebbetzins play a vital role within their synagogues and often become aware of issues within families that may need professional attention. This program will give the rebbetzins the knowledge of available resources that they can share with synagogue members.”
