Please join Rabbi Kozlow's next weekly class, beginning at noon Wednesday, Nov. 11. We will be discussing the profound ideas explored in The Wisdom of Not Knowing by Estelle Frankel.

Frankel proposes that psychological, emotional, and spiritual health depend on accepting how much in life cannot be known, and that it is important to have the courage to face uncertainty and ambiguity,. 

The author is a practicing psychotherapist, spiritual director and popular public speaker. In her private practice in Albany, CA, she works with individuals and couples providing brief and long-term psychotherapy and spiritual mentoring. She is also a seasoned teacher of Jewish mysticism and meditation who offers workshops on the intersection of psychology and spirituality, Kabbalah and healing, and Musar, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology.
