To say Jewish culture focuses a lot on food would be an understatement. There are large, festive meals every Shabbat and holiday. With all this emphasis on food — or a lack thereof — some people who have eating disorders may struggle to observe Jewish laws and customs.
That’s the focus of “Feasting, Fasting and Feelings; Oy Vey! A Transdiagnostic Approach to Treating Eating Disorders in the Jewish Community,” an online seminar The Renfrew Center of New York City hosted on May 4 from 8:45 a.m. to 11 a.m. EST.
