About the Event
For the past twenty-five years Elaine Leeder has been working in prisons in NY and California. First as a professor, then as a self-help group trainer and now has a victim/offender dialogue facilitator. Elaine has worked with men who have been incarcerated for life; she has seen the redemption and humanity that one rarely hears of about such people. Elaine has worked with Jewish prisoners and will tell you about her experiences with these Jews but also about how her Jewish values inform and influence her work. She will elaborate on how Jewish spirituality can be seen in prison and the impact that has on their self-development. Both in person and via Zoom. Please register in advance. Online Information Here.
