Join Rabbi Knight and Rabbi Erdheim as we read  The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life by Edith Eger  

A native of Hungary, Edith Eger was a teenager when she and her family were sent to Auschwitz. Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the Holocaust and emigrated with her husband and young daughter to America where she raised a family, earned a Ph.D., and practiced psychology. She spent decades hiding from her past, struggling with flashback and survivor’s guilt. 35 years after World War II ended, Edith returned to Auschwitz and was finally able to heal and forgive herself.  

Eger explains that the worst prison she experienced is not the prison that Nazis put her in but the one she created for herself: the prison within her own mind. She describes the most pervasive imprisoning beliefs she has known—including fear, grief, anger, secrets, stress, guilt, shame, and avoidance—and the tools she has discovered to deal with these universal challenges. These lessons are offered through riveting and inspiring stories from her life and the lives of her patients. 
 
Eger’s wise and heartfelt advice is as timely, and timeless, as ever and certain to resonate with us as we prepare for the High Holy Days. 

We will be covering 3 Lessons during each session:
