Shabbat Shelanu Welcomes Dr. Elisha Waldman
Shabbat Shelanu is Something For Us!
Join us for a Shabbat experience designed to allow congregants 50+ to connect with their Anshe Emet community.
Anshe Emet and Shabbat Shelanu welcomes synagogue congregant Dr. Elisha Waldman, pediatric oncologist.
Dr. Waldman will discuss his book, This Narrow Space: A Pediatric Oncologist, His Jewish, Muslim, and Christian Patients, and a Hospital in Jerusalem.
This memoir is both bittersweet and inspiring and focuses on his seven years in Jerusalem treating children—Israeli Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and Palestinian Arabs from the West Bank and Gaza—who had all been diagnosed with cancer.
