Nishmah Salon to discuss ‘toxic relationships’

The Nishmah Salon series will discuss toxic relationships during programs Jan. 26 and 27. The series offers an opportunity for women of all ages to connect and engage with other women in meaningful discussion on topics of interest to us as Jewish women.  

As adults, toxic relationships can occur in the workplace, at synagogues and within friend groups. The salon will look at what adult bullying looks like, how to define such toxic relationships, ways to prevent toxic relationships from hurting one’s personal or professional life, and Jewish perspectives on such relationships.

All Salons will discuss the same articles; participants should choose a time/day from the following:

• Tuesday, Jan. 26, 7:30-9 p.m. at a private home in Clayton, facilitated by Karen Sher.

• Wednesday Jan. 27, 12:30-2 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center, 2 Millstone Campus Dr. in Creve Coeur, facilitated by Ellen Schapiro. Guests may bring a bagged lunch.

• Wednesday, Jan. 27, 7-8:30 p.m. at Traditional Congregation facilitated by Cyndee Levy 

• Wednesday Jan. 27, 7:30-9 p.m. facilitated by Morgan Cooper at NextDor, 5062 Waterman Blvd..
