Larry Waldman, an author and recently retired clinical, forensic psychologist and certified school psychologist in Phoenix, was one of many local presenters at Limmud AZ. He presented sessions on dealing with elderly parents and arguing constructively with a partner.
"Drum Shalom: Drum for Peace, Drum for Healing, Drum for Fun," presented by Rabbi Sarah Leah Grafstein, was a two-hour class of drumming. Other participatory sessions included meditation, yoga, blindfolded yoga, Israeli dancing and creating a musical composition.
