Is Jewish Happiness An Oxymoron?
Is Jewish Guilt and Intelligence Getting In The Way of Our Happiness?
Steven S. Charlap
EVENT DESCRIPTION: Jews have simultaneously struggled with both a superiority and inferiority complex. Some say that the combination of a feeling of responsibility towards the entire world coupled with their own cultural neuroses defines what it means to be a Jew. This lecture will consider the myth of 'Jewish Guilt,' explore the basis of the complex Jewish relationship with the world, and identify ways to discover happiness despite Jewish intellectual doggedness.
BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Dr. Steven S. Charlap received his M.D. at New York University School of Medicine and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. He also trained as a surgeon at Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC. As the founder of HealthDrive, he built the largest U.S. medical/dental practice which served five million long-term-care patients in thirteen states. First-hand experience with Americans suffering with chronic disease motivated Charlap to create and start MDPrevent where he is the Chief Medical Officer. MDPrevent supports and educates on how to make lifestyle changes to avoid chronic disease. His publications include Making Sense of Nursing Homes - A Guide for Families and two new books, one on longevity and centenarians and another about the media's influence on consumer health practices. Both are planned for publication in 2014.
