Join Us for Lunch with Rabbi Evan Moffic as he discusses his new book, The Happiness Prayer: Ancient Jewish Wisdom for the Best Way to Live Today.Through wisdom, stories and good humor, Rabbi Evan Moffic reveals the spiritual power of an ancient prayer. Called The Happiness Prayer and discovered in a 2000 year old text, it is a framework for living based on ten practices of the Jewish wisdom tradition.   Moffic discovered the power of the prayer when, at age 30, he was appointed the youngest lead rabbi of a large U.S. synagogue. What was supposed to be a time of happiness and celebration became one of personal challenge. The prayer became a guidepost pointing Rabbi Moffic in the right direction. While incorporating it into his life and teaching it, he became known as the “smiling rabbi.” It has helped hundreds of people—couples, teenagers, empty nesters—struggling with loss, divorce and ruptured relationships find renewed meaning and purpose in their lives.  In the tradition of Rabbi Harold Kushner, Moffic opens up wisdom from the heart of Judaism with insights for today. Drawing from interactions with thousands of congregants, as well as his own experience; relating stories of real people; providing accessible commentary from contemporary psychologists; and sprinkling in warm humor, this rabbi of a new generation sheds light on an enduring prayer that captures the means and meaning of joyous living that will appeal to everyone.                        Time: 11:45 AM Networking/Luncheon Program Cost: $38 per Person (Food & Beverage charges include tax and gratuity) “Spiritual wisdom meets positive psychology, showing that the examined life is not an unhappy one.” —Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS and GIVE AND TAKE, and coauthor of OPTION B "Rabbi Evan Moffic masterfully invokes ancient Jewish wisdom to help us find happiness in our modern world." —Dr. Tal Ben Shahar, author of New York Times bestseller Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment “A book about prayer, kindness, and happiness -- a perfect trilogy.  Follow Rabbi Moffic's suggestions, and you will not only be a blessing in other people's lives, you will be a blessing in your own as well.” —Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy, Words that Hurt, Words that Heal and New York Times bestseller Rebbe
