Winnipeg to Join Worldwide Release of Code to Joy: The World’s Happiest Kept Secret

Friday, 1 January, 2021 - 9:12 am

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.

This January, the Rosh Chodesh Society (RCS)—the women’s division of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI)—launches its latest course, Code to Joy, slated to run in over 220 locations across the globe. In this seven-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,” says RCS director Mrs. Shaindy Jacobson. “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 seven 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,” says Mrs. Adina Altein of Chabad-Lubavitch of Winnipeg, facilitator for the Society. “I invite you to join me in discovering and cracking the Code to Joy.”

The Rosh Chodesh Society is an international Jewish sisterhood that aims to connect, empower, and inspire Jewish women through monthly Jewish learning and cultural experiences. For more information on Code to Joy, please visit

Mrs. Adina Altein will be teaching Code to Joy on Sundays, starting January 24th at 7:30 pm. Due to COVID restrictions, classes will be taught virtually over Zoom. Anyone interested is welcome to call 204-339-8737 for more information.
