An ordinary man's extraordinary experiences


Author, Dr. Harry Rein

Temple Israel's Adult Education Committee will host Dr. Harry Rein who will discuss his new book titled "From Stethoscope to Gavel: Of becoming a Doctor, Lawyer and Judge" on Dec. 13, at about 11:15 am (right after the Annual Congregational Town Hall meeting. There will be refreshments followed by selected readings, discussion and a book signing.

Rein is a Holocaust survivor who became the only doctor-lawyer-judge practicing in the United States. His story begins on the final train leaving Austria after Hitler's annexation. He eventually arrives in America and embarks on a remarkable journey filled with tragedy as well as triumph.

Rein's trip through life and the three professions of doctor, lawyer, and judge, is related through stories and anecdotes that describe the hurdles and hardships, friends and foes, and means and methods for reaching the "City on a Hill" described by President Reagan.

Rein is firmly committed to Judaism and Temple Israel and he believes he encounters angels-both seen and unseen-along the way who encourage him to reach higher and help him and his family in inexplicable ways.

From Stethoscope to Gavel is the true story of an ordinary man from a humble background whose optimism and generosity in the face of crushing hardship will challenge, encourage, and motivate generations to come.

Copies of Rein's book will be available for purchase and signing with all proceeds going to Temple Israel.
