Penny Rosenwasser talks about her new book HOPE into PRACTICE, Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears.
Guest host Sutree talks with Penny Rosenwasser about her new book HOPE into PRACTICE, Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears.

HOPE into PRACTICE responds with a rare blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine—asking us to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them. Working through internalized oppression, we can link personal healing with social justice—enabling us to fight more effectively, as visible self-loving Jews, to change systems that are immoral and unfair. Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition and community, this book is an activist’s call to create a more just and generous world. Includes an action-oriented Reader’s Guide, for groups or individuals!

A life-long heartfelt rabble-rouser for justice, she earned her Ph.D. at the California Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco) in Transformational Learning & Change.
