Angela Himsel: A River Could Be A Tree

Molly Burack Annual Lecture

In partnership with the Jewish Book Council
This event is made possible by the generosity of CareOne at Livingston NJ Assisted Living.

The seventh of eleven children, Angela grew up in Southern Indiana in an apocalyptic, doomsday Christian faith.  Attempting to understand the church’s strict tenets, she went to Israel in college.  Instead of strengthening her Christian faith, her time in Israel made her question Christianity itself.  She ultimately converted to Judaism and lives in New York with her family.

Free and open to the community. Limited seating – advance registration strongly encouraged.

Books will be available for purchase. Dessert Reception to follow program
