Nevei Kodesh to Hold Shabbaton with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone PhD

Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, PhD

Rabbi Tirzah Firestone will be presenting a special weekend Shabbaton entitled “Wounds Into Wisdom: Transforming Our Past to Create A New Future.

The painful history of our ancestors as well as their rich cultural wisdom linger and intertwine within us to create the patterns of who we are and who we are becoming. Even when past pain remains unspoken or has long been forgotten, it becomes part of us and our children—a legacy of both strength and woundedness that shapes our lives.

This Shabbaton is for anyone interested in healing the past, as well as those interested in personal transformation.

Using guided meditation, stories, teachings from Torah, science, and the seven principles of healing culled from her trauma research, Reb Tirzah will take us on a journey that promises to be both personally and collectively transformative.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
