This evening I will be heading off to Boston for the Rabbinical Assembly's annual convention.
It will be a great chance to reconnect with some old friends and colleagues, and an opportunity for some great learning. I am especially looking forward to hearing Jonathan Sarna, and hearing some of the sessions on Rabbinic Self-Care.
As I continue with my chaplaincy training, I am building skills and experience to help rabbis in this very important area of making sure to take care of yourself at the same time you are taking care of others (a very challenging thing to do as anybody in a caring profession well knows). I am looking forward to hearing more about what people are currently doing in this field.
