Strange Contagion at Base Hillel

  • Silverstein Base Hillel 858 West Wrightwood Avenue Chicago, IL, 60614 United States (map)

Did you know that thoughts, emotions and behaviors are highly contagious? Join Lee Daniel Kravetz, author of the riviting book Strange Contaigon, for an interview-style discussion with Rabbi Lizzi on his findings and a group discussion on how we can use them to build healthier communities of our own. Strange Contaigon explores the science and lived experience of social contagion— the propensity for certain behaviors exhibited by one person to be copied by others. You don't need to have read the book to attend (but you should read it because it's fascinating). The first 10 people to RSVP will get a signed copy! Space is limited. Thanks to Silverstein Base Hillel for co-sponsoring this event.
