RSVP: Asiyah Jewish Community

Come hear Yiscah Smith share teachings from Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman Shapira, known as the Piasetzna Rebbe, on opening up to the spiritual life that is within all of us and on how these teachings have manifested in her life. Her talk will be anchored, at the beginning and end, by short periods of contemplative silence.

Yiscah is a Jewish educator, spiritual activist, and published author who addresses the spiritual practice of encountering the Divine spark within. She employs her personal story of the joys and struggles with her spirituality, gender identity, and commitment to authentic living. As one who transitioned from a Chabad man to an observant woman, she exemplifies what it means to carve one’s own path: understanding one’s inner being and cultivating the integrity to remaining faithful to that understanding, unapologetically.

Q&A and light refreshments to follow.

In partnership with Tremont Street Shul and Ruach HaYam.
