A hybrid event (in-person and virtual) by Rabbi Sharon Brous
ABOUT THE EVENT:
The Amen Effect: Ancient Wisdom to Mend Our Broken Hearts and World (on-sale: 1/9/24), makes the case that in an era of loneliness, social alienation and ideological extremism, our deepest spiritual work is finding our way to one other—in celebration, sorrow, and solidarity. Relationships of care and curiosity, Brous argues, are essential to both personal healing and social change. This is how we reawaken our humanity.
