Claim the Spiritual Freedom That Waits Beyond the Suffering and Slavery of Addiction “One of the important similarities between AA and Jewish spirituality is the statement in Step 12, ‘to practice these principles in all our affairs....’ There is no dichotomy of sacred versus secular. Jewish spirituality applies to how we eat, sleep, work, socialize and recreate. There is nothing that is external to the relationship of human being to God.” —from the Foreword A major new Jewish contribution to 12-Step spirituality. This easy-to-read exploration from a Jewish perspective is the first comprehensive approach to successfully integrate classic Jewish spirituality with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other recovery resources. With clarity and passion, Rabbi Paul Steinberg masterfully weaves traditional Jewish wisdom with the experience, strength and hope of AA. He draws on Jewish resources—theological, psychological and ethical—that speak to the spiritual dimension of the disease, and shows how the principles of Jewish spiritual recovery directly align with those of the AA 12 Steps. Along the way, he courageously shares his own personal struggles with alcoholism and addiction in a way that will help others find guidance and a new life path—and stay on it.

ExtraOrdinary: An End of Life Story Without End is a spiritual memoir and love story about a man who became a healer and a teacher in his mid-nineties as his own life was coming to completion. Herman Liss, an Orthodox Jew. was described by a Christian mystic with the Buddhist term bodhisattva—a person who returns to this life to help lift others on their soul journey. It is said that great sages often come in the form of ordinary people. Herman Liss, Michele Tamaren's stepfather, was such a man. ExtraOrdinary tells of the love between Herman and his wife that continued after her passing. It shares the love between an elder and a young volunteer eighty years his junior and between a father and his adult daughter. It also explores how a hospice patient, through his compassion and his wisdom, helped heal those who cared for him. ExtraOrdinary is written in two voices: that of Michele, Herman's daughter not by blood but by blessing, and that of Herman's young volunteer, Michael Wittner, who created an award-winning film about the sacred passage from loss and despair to connection and joy. Herman taught by example how to love, how to listen, how to forgive, and how to be grateful for each day. ExtraOrdinary is a story of growth and learning, a joining of generations and cultures and hearts.
