September is National Recovery Month. JF&CS is proud to host Rabbi Ilan Glazer, founder and director of Our Jewish Recovery, to lead an important virtual workshop on addiction in the Jewish community.
For far too long, the Jewish community has turned a blind eye to the prevalence and impact of addiction in our midst. Everyone needs recovery; only some are brave enough to admit it.
- Are the 12 steps of recovery Jewish?
- Why do so many suffer in silence, and what can we do to get help to those in need?
- What tools does Judaism offer those who experience the disease and pain of addiction?
- How can we better serve those crying out for help?
- Where is hope to be found?
Rabbi Ilan Glazer is the founder and director of Our Jewish Recovery, which exists to uplift the hearts and souls of everyone impacted by addiction in the Jewish community. They aim to end the stigma of addiction in the Jewish community and ensure that everyone impacted by addiction receives the support we all deserve. The private Our Jewish Recovery Facebook group is the heart and soul of the community, where over 800 members share their experience, strength and hope and support each other on their journey. In addition, Our Jewish Recovery has 12 weekly gatherings, with Torah study from a recovery lens, Jewish recovery book studies and recovery meetings, along with classes, virtual retreats and much more in the works.
Glazer is also the author of “And God Created Recovery: Jewish Wisdom to Help You Break Free From Your Addiction, Heal Your Wounds, and Unleash Your Inner Freedom,” a sought-after speaker about recovery, grief and mourning, prayer and spirituality, and a freelance recovery, spirituality and transformation coach based in Baltimore.+ More... - Less...
