The Amen Effect: Ancient Wisdom to Mend Our Broken Hearts and World

Rabbi Sharon Brous

In conversation with Father Gregory Boyle

Co-presented with Skylight Books

“Rabbi Brous shares remarkable compassion, insight, and moral vision in these pages that illuminate a way forward at a time when the fog of fear and anger in the world grows ever dense. This wonderful book is welcome, affirming, and urgently needed.” —Bryan Stevenson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Just Mercy

Join us for a conversation with one of our country’s most prominent rabbis, Rabbi Sharon Brous of IKAR, discussing her new book, The Amen Effect, which looks at our society’s deep disconnection and alienation and explores how we can tackle our loneliness and isolation by embracing and rebuilding our communities.

Rabbi Brous will be in conversation with celebrated Los Angeles-based activist and founder of Homeboy Industries, Father Gregory Boyle.
