Penny Rosenwasser, author of Hope Into Practice: Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears

A Room of One's Own is honored to welcome Penny Rosenwasser for a reading and signing in connection with her book Hope Into Practice.

Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition, community-building, and an activist's call to repair the world and end racism, Hope into Practice asks Jewish women for the courage to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them - to free ourselves of internalized anti-Semitism, expanding our sense of possibility, empowering our activism. This book brings to life an irresistible blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine, inviting us to use privilege to shift power and midwife justice. Includes action-oriented Reader's Guide, for groups or individuals.

Penny Rosenwasser is the author of Visionary Voices, Women on Power, and Voices from a 'Promised Land:' Palestinian & Israeli Peace Activists Speak Their Hearts. A lifelong heartfelt rabble-rouser for justice, she earned her Ph.D. at the California Institute of Integral Studies and is former Jewish Caucus Chair of the National Women's Studies Association. She is also a founding board member of Jewish Voice for Peace, teaches at City College of San Francisco, and is a member of Kehilla Synagogue.

The Dude and the Zen Master

For lovers of The Big Lebowski this is a great little book that applies concepts and sayings from the movie and applies them to real life situations. This isn't a zen guide, it's more like eavesdropping on two guys you totally wish you could have over for coffee. The book reads as an ongoing dialog between Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman. It is funny and insightful.
