Feeling grateful is good for you! Use the tools that Jewish tradition has provided to help us to be aware of our blessings and to express gratitude – during the Thanksgiving season and every day.

Psychological studies have shown that feeling and expressing gratitude are important components of a happy, balanced life. 

There are elements in Jewish tradition that can help us to be aware of our blessings and to express gratitude. Expressing gratitude does not mean ignoring that there is pain and hardship in the world. It means making a daily effort to see that along with the difficulty, there is also good in life that is worth celebrating.

These activities and text-based discussions bring the topic to life.
