Congregation Eitz Chayim is proud to cosponsor an evening with Yiscah Smith, presented by the Asiyah Jewish Community.

The event will take place at the Tremont Street Shul, 8 Tremont St, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139.

Yiscah will be sharing teachings from Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman Shapira, known as the Piasetzna Rebbe, on opening up to the spiritual life that is within all of us and reflecting personally on how these teachings have manifested in her life. Her talk will be anchored, at the beginning and end, by short periods of contemplative silence. Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers. Light refreshments will be served.

Tickets are $10. (No one will be turned away for lack of funds)

About Yiscah: (more at )

Yiscah is a Jewish educator, spiritual activist and published author who addresses the spiritual practice of encountering the Divine spark within, the foundation of authentic living. She employs her personal story of the joys and struggles with her spirituality, gender identity and commitment to authentic living.

As one who transitioned from a Chabad man to an observant woman, she exemplifies what it means to carve one’s own path: understanding one’s inner being and cultivating the integrity to remaining faithful to that understanding, unapologetically. As a spiritual trailblazer, while carving her own path, Yiscah encourages, ennobles and empowers others to do the same.

In partnership with The Tremont St. Shul, Congregation Eitz Chayim, Ruach HaYam, Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, and more in progress.
