While the world is slowing down Sydney’s BINA is gaining speed producing programs online for the entire Australasian communities.

As soon as the world changed in March, BINA has been at the forefront in bringing knowledge, inspiration and emotional/spiritual support to the community. All virtually online of course.

The BINA program has actually grown during this time. Recognizing the challenge and the isolation that many are experiencing on so many levels (mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially) BINA introduced additional programming, especially aimed at providing healthy perspective, hope, inner strength and resilience as we all take this journey together. This includes brief inspirational videos, online Jewish meditations, discussions on Jewish Mindfulness and a WhatsApp series on issues of Emunah (faith) and Bitachon (trust in G-d).

In this time of uncertainty and unease, there’s no more critical time to make these discussions more accessible. The response has been incredible with BINA’s reach and impact expanding even more during this period.

Now that both school holidays and Passover are over, BINA begins Term 3 next week. The program is as full as ever with a very diverse and raw program.

Here are some programs aimed specifically at the challenges of the Covid-19 period (All on Zoom)
