Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Jewish lineage has accrued much wisdom over the past 3,000 years and many wounds, too, after centuries of adversity. Recent studies in the fields of neuroscience and epigenetics demonstrate that our traumatic experiences stay with us and are often transmitted to future generations. As we emerge from Tisha B’Av, a time of grieving, join Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone for a talk delving into this, and exploring the journey of culling family and tribal legacies for their positive, life-giving gifts and facing the detrimental patterns we have inherited, in order to dissolve and repair them. Reb Tirzah will draw on stories and research from her award-winning book, Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma.
