Inspiring Rabbi and Author Naomi Levy Visits Boulder

Rabbi Naomi Levy

We are so delighted to be hosting my friend and colleague Rabbi Naomi Levy in Boulder, whose contemporary prayers and inspiring words have brought strength and meaning to thousands. Naomi has received great acclaim for her books “To Begin Again” and “Talking to God” and now presents her new book: “Hope Will Find You”

How can I get my life off hold?

When will my life really begin?

We all ask ourselves the same questions when we are struggling to move forward. As a rabbi, Naomi Levy frequently offered spiritual guidance to people seeking the answers. But when a doctor told her that her young daughter, Noa, had a fatal degenerative disease, Rabbi Levy’s own insights could not prevent her whole life from unraveling. In Hope Will Find You, Naomi Levy shares her journey and the wisdom she gained. She describes with humor and honesty how she came through a time of uncertainty and fear and learned how to stop waiting for life to begin. A natural and engaging storyteller, Levy has written a book filled with invaluable lessons for living in the present and for opening the door to an extraordinary future.

We are so blessed that Rabbi Naomi Levy will be sharing some of her insights and her humor with us in Boulder. Here is the full program of events:
