On Yom Kippur, September 28, you can enrich your holiday by watching four remarkable individuals in conversation with Rabbi Naomi Levy, founder of Nashuva.
The virtual conversations are part of Nashuva’s OneYomKippur.com, an initiative to showcase the themes of Judaism’s most sacred holiday in a modern, soulful way that resonates with the entire family. The conversations are co-sponsored with The Forward.
Levy speaks with Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health, Susan Cain, best-selling author of “Quiet”, Dr. Lori Gottlieb, best-selling author of “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” and Alex Banayan, best-selling author of “The Third Door”.
“These people have long inspired me with their insights into introspection, faith, doubt and forgiveness,” said Levy, herself the best-selling author of “To Begin Again,” among other books. “I know on Yom Kippur they will inspire others.”
As the director of the country’s leading health research agency, Dr. Francis Collins said he devotes ”almost my every waking moment” to finding treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19. He is also a deeply religious Christian who sees science and faith as intertwined. The scientist and the rabbi speak about hope amid the pandemic.
Susan Cain, author of the New York Times best-seller “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” launched a “quiet revolution” in America. Levy and Cain speak about the power of going inward.
New York-based psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb, author of “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” writes the advice column for The Atlantic. Levy and Gottlieb discuss the challenge of understanding ourselves, and others.
Alex Banayan has taught a new generation how to break down the doors to success in his runaway best-seller, “The Third Door” featuring his interviews with Lady Gaga, Maya Angelou, Bill Gates and others. Levy and Banayan talk about conquering self-doubt and finding your path forward.
