Author and activist Penny Rosenwasser discusses her new book in an interactive program. Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition, community-building, and an activist’s call to repair the world, Hope into Practice asks Jewish women for the courage to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them—to free ourselves of internalized anti-Semitism, expanding our sense of possibility, empowering our activism. This book brings to life an irresistible blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine. Includes action-oriented Reader’s Guide, for groups or individuals.
