By interweaving a Passover Seder with personal stories of addiction, Freedom Song poses one stark question: “WHAT ARE YOU A SLAVE TO?” The cast of Freedom Song is not a cast of actors; they are actual addicts in recovery that have broken off the shackles of drugs, alcohol, gambling, and other destructive behaviors. Using song and dance, tears and laughter, and an intense post show discussion with our cast, Freedom Song will open your eyes to the real life struggle against the “bondage of self” that we all fight every day.
We are thrilled to welcome Beit T’Shuvah for a presentation of their extraordinary musical performance, Freedom Song. This program will be our Confirmation Academy session on March 30. We strongly encourage parents to attend with their teens. Given the themes of substance abuse and addiction, the target audience is post b’nai mitzvah teens and adults. .
This program is being hosted in partnership with Temple Sholom, Jewish Family Service, and our Jewish Federation and is open to the community.
Beit T’Shuvah is a haven for spiritual growth and healing. Housing both a residential treatment center and a supportive, spiritual community, Beit T’Shuvah approaches addiction and other destructive behaviors with a groundbreaking model focusing on the integration of the whole self—the mind, body, and spirit. This model integrates Jewish spirituality, psychotherapy, addiction counseling, The 12 steps, and creative arts. We help our clients practice the art of living well through diverse programing designed to teach individuals how to live in concert with their own unique holiness. More than just a treatment center, Beit T’Shuvah is a flourishing group of people devoted to living healthy, purposeful lives.
This event is made possible by a grant from the Ariel E. Malberg Memorial Fund at Temple Beth-El. Gifts to this fund help support programs for those suffering from homelessness, addiction or mental health issues.
