Giving Teens the Tools to Thrive

Date: Thursday, March 14
Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am (EDT)
Aidekman Jewish Community Campus, 901 Route 10, Whippany

As part of the Be Well Series, guest speaker Pam Schuller, a comedian and storyteller, addresses this important topic with humor and compassion. The way teens and adults are navigating growing antisemitism and anti-Israel messaging is not solely intellectual – it is also happening on an emotional and spiritual level. As we read or watch things that attack us, we are drawn into anger, despair, anguish, frustration, and sometimes desperation.  As we read or watch things that uplift us, we experience solidarity, empathy, and satisfaction.

Pam Schuller combines comedy and storytelling to inspire a new understanding of inclusion. She can be seen on Netflix’s Jewish Matchmaking, Doctor Mike Videos, NBC, and was named one of the “36 under 36” who are changing the face of the Jewish community by The Jewish Week. She has worked on inclusion and accessibility with Disney, Google, WellsFargo, and GEICO to name a few. Pamela is working toward a more accessible world, where inclusion is something we all do, not just hear about.
