Rivvy Neshama will be reading stories from her award-winning book, “RECIPES FOR A SACRED LIFE: True Stories and a Few Miracles,” at Congregation Bonai Shalom on December 5th.
From dancing to forgiving, from walking at dawn to sharing dinner with a stranger, Neshama invites us to find the sacred — in unlikely places and everyday life. Rich in heart and humor and steeped in ancient wisdom, these short, true tales reveal how ordinary encounters — with friends, nature, family, and strangers — can suddenly connect us with the sacred, adding love, joy, and purpose to our lives. This book is for anyone seeking inspiration … and for everyone who enjoys a good story!
Rivvy’s delightful stories open the heart and raise us to a higher level of compassion and generosity. Read them, one at a time, and then daydream on them. And you will take on a glow of joy and feel more secure in God’s world.”– Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi z”l
