Hadassah hosts a luncheon with author Ellen Brazer

 

November 24, 2017



The Orlando Chapter of Hadassah is pleased to announce that author Ellen Brazer will make an exclusive appearance for Orlando Hadassah on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 11:30 a.m. at Congregation Ohev Shalom to present her latest work, “The Wondering Jew: My Journey into Judaism.”

“It all began with a promise: a promise I made to my father, a promise that led me on a journey into the heart and soul of Judaism. The result is this book, filled with intensely personal stories that helped me unlock some of the complicated teachings that make Judaism such a difficult religion to understand. The reader will learn, in a very unique way, the basics of the Jewish religion: Torah, Hebrew Bible, the holidays and the traditions. You will laugh, you will cry, you will question as you are challenged to contemplate the mysteries of Judaism: angels and reincarnation, reward and punishment, good and evil. I hope you will join me on this journey of discovery and wonder.”

Brazer is an award-winning author, and the recipient of Hadassah’s prestigious Myrtle Wreath Award, an award previously presented to the late Mia Angelou. Her book “Clouds Across the Sun” has been listed on Amazon under the best Holocaust related novels. 

“And So It Was Written” premiered as a bestseller under Jewish Literature on Amazon. In the past three years Brazer has spoken to over 6,000 people at venues throughout the country. Two of her short stories appeared in the Carnegie Melon Anthology.

She has recently had the honor of being invited to join the Jewish National Fund Speakers Bureau and The Jewish Federation Speakers Bureau.

Even though Brazer has written three very different kinds of books: one Holocaust related, one ancient Jewish history and one nonfiction, one thing remains constant in her books; a deep and abiding love for Israel and the Jewish people.

Brazer resides in South Beach with her husband, Mel. Between them they have six children and 13 grandchildren plus, plus, plus! She is active in the community and particularly in Jewish affairs and organizations.

Join Hadassah for “Lunch with Ellen Brazer” on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at Congregation Ohev Shalom at 11:30 a.m. The public is welcome to attend.

Reservations are required. Couvert is $14.
