Join us for a biweekly opportunity to explore the Twelve Steps of AA from a Jewish perspective using the book “Twelve Jewish Steps to Recovery: A Personal Guide to Turning From Alcoholism and Other Addictions — Drugs, Food, Gambling, Sex…

A rabbi, a psychiatrist and many recovering Jewish people share their understanding of the “Twelve Jewish Steps” of recovery from addiction of all kinds based on conversations with each other—and with God. They present a Jewish perspective on the Twelve Steps and offer consolation, inspiration and motivation for recovery—for people of all faiths and backgrounds—by drawing on traditional and contemporary Jewish sources and by sharing what recovering people say about their experiences. They explore why some Jews are uncomfortable with the Twelve Steps, as well as how the Jewish understanding of the Twelve Steps differs from the Christian understanding of it.
