A new course for women, Code to Joy: The World’s Happiest Kept Secret, explores a simple premise: Happiness isn’t just something that happens to you; it’s an approach, an attitude, an understanding of the world and your place in it. It’s something you do, a code that you can crack. 


The Jewish Women’s Circle at Chabad of Monroeville is excited to announce a new offering for women, The Rosh Chodesh Society (RCS), a once a month women’s class that aims to transform the lives of Jewish women, their families, and their greater communities through the bonds of shared Jewish experience.

This year’s course is titled Code to Joy. In this six-part series, Code to Joy delves into some of the underlying ideas and beliefs that sustain a truly joyful life. Fusing classic Jewish concepts with the panoramic perspective of Chasidic thought, along with a sprinkling of insights and research from modern psychology, you’ll learn how to find self-acceptance without complacency, to confront the past without being burdened by it, to be comforted by faith without being confined by it, to give to others and gain even more, and so much more. 

It is not happiness that makes us grateful. It’s gratefulness that makes us happy. In Code to Joy we discover that joy is untouched by circumstance. We learn a pivotal truth: that what matters most is how we appreciate our life circumstances and how often we express that appreciation.    

The course will be taught once per month for six consecutive months and is designed for women at all levels of Jewish knowledge.

From the importance of nurturing a healthy self-concept; to expressing our personal strength while pursuing our life mission; to overcoming stress through positivity; and many other valuable, transformative lessons, this course takes us on a journey that ultimately leads us to a deeper, lasting happiness. I invite you to join me in discovering and cracking the Code to Joy.”
