On October 7th, 2023, David-Seth Kirshner woke up excited to celebrate his 50th birthday. Instead of eating cake, Rabbi Kirshner was glued to the news as the horrible attack by Hamas upon innocent Israelis began to unfold.
Written during those first 50 days, Streams of Shattered Consciousness is a chronicle of Rabbi Kirshner’s emotions and opinions with a healthy dose of history lessons. This newly released book is a record of a watershed moment in the history of the Jewish people.
Anger, rage, surprise, fear, hope, frustration, anxiety, conviction, and grief inhabited his mind and body.
The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades will present a conversation between Temple Emanu-El in Closter’s Rabbi Kirshner and JCC CEO Steve Rogers about Streams of Shattered Consciousness. Please join us as two community leaders come together to have this important discussion.
Wednesday, January 24 7:30 PM $25 (Includes the book)
