Ariel Burger

Join JCC MetroWest as we recognize Yom HaShoah.

Ariel Burger first met Elie Wiesel at age fifteen; he became his student in his 20s, and his teaching assistant in his 30s. Witness: Lessons from Elie Wiesel’s Classroom chronicles the intimate conversations between these two men over decades, as Burger sought counsel on matters of intellect, spirituality, and faith while navigating his own personal journey from boyhood to manhood, from student and assistant to rabbi and, in time, teacher.

Based on twenty-five years’ worth of journal entries, five years of classroom notes, and interviews with Elie Wiesel’s students from all over the world, this profoundly hopeful, thought-provoking, and inspiring book takes us into Wiesel’s classroom, where the art of listening and storytelling conspire to keep memory alive. Burger gives us a front-row seat to these remarkable exchanges.
