Presented by Amy Schwartz, Moment Magazine Opinion and Book Editor

The search for happiness is as old as humanity itself. In Jewish culture and text, the subject of happiness surfaces repeatedly. Confronted with the absolute devastation and evil of the Holocaust, Jewish thinkers revisited the topic. Among them was survivor and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl, who gave birth to what is now called positive psychology, the scientific study of how to make people happy. Amy Schwartz will lead an interactive program as we attempt not to discover the secret to happiness, but to explore Jewish insights into this elusive state-of-mind.

Amy worked at Harper’s Magazine and The New Republic before joining The Washington Post, where she was an editorial writer and op-ed columnist on cultural issues from 1985 to 2002. She has also lived in and reported from France, Germany, and Turkey and has been Moment’s opinion editor since 2011.
