THE AMEN EFFECT Ancient Wisdom to Mend Our Broken Hearts and World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sharon Brous

Philosophy & Religion • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Rabbi Sharon Brous, the senior rabbi of a Jewish community in Los Angeles, is an accomplished preacher who speaks clearly and quickly. Her fast pace becomes compelling as Rabbi Brous gets into the heart of her book, which rests on this statement that ". . . we who hold a dream of building a different kind of society must begin by building a different kind of community." Rabbi Brous's wonderful storytelling ability highlights an ancient Second Temple ritual demonstrating the need to acknowledge the pain of loss or illness; she then gives examples of her own community's striving to show up during situations both good and bad. She creates a superbly useful template for our times, when true community often seems to hang by a thread. S.G.
