Join Congregation Bonai Shalom as we welcome Reb Tirzah Firestone to our First Friday series. On Friday, January 3, 2014, Reb Tirzah will share dreams, stories, and teachings from her life and research about the uncanny help that comes to us to further us on our journeys toward wholeness. Rabbi Tirzah Firestone was the beloved founding rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh in Boulder until she retired last year. She is also an acclaimed author and psychotherapist and is currently working on her doctorate in Depth Psychology with an emphasis on eco and the global community, at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Reb Tirzah is no stranger to Bonai Shalom and she and Rabbi Marc have collaborated on a number of programs over the years.
