Jewish Journeys will host YU psychology chair and author 

Dr. David Pelcovitz, author and chair of Yeshiva University’s psychology department, will discuss “Thinking Alike vs. Thinking Together: Paths to Strengthening Relationships” on Monday, May 23, at 7:30 p.m. The talk, for Jewish Journeys, will be at Congregation Rinat Yisael in Teaneck.

Jewish Journeys is a Bergen County organization whose mission is to strengthen Jewish homes through a renewal of Jews’ connection to Judaism and Israel. The momentum is generated through a nine-day, highly subsidized trip to Israel sponsored by the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project. Since 2011, the group has taken more than 100 Bergen County women to Israel for this Birthright-like experience.

Amy and David Albalah will share their experiences on the JWRP Israel trip and how it has affected their lives. The group’s next trip is in November. For information, email
