Petaluma's Inclusive Center for Jewish Life

Lecture: Jews, Prison and Spirituality

Wednesday, January 25, 2023 3 Shevat 5783

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

For the past 25 years, Elaine (Sneierson) Leeder has been working in prisons in New York and California. First as a professor, then a self-help group trainer, and now as a victim/offender dialogue facilitator, Elaine has worked with men who have been incarcerated for life. She has seen the redemption and humanity that one rarely hears of about such people.

Elaine has worked with Jewish prisoners and will tell you about her experiences with these Jews and about how her Jewish values inform and influence her restorative justice work. She will elaborate on how Jewish spirituality can be seen in prison and the impact that has on the prisoner's self-development. Light refreshments will be served.

No charge but reservation is required. This event is partially underwritten by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and Society.
