Special JCCV Live Webinar on Monday, June 27th – Register Now

Monday, June 27th, 2022 from 10:00 to 11:00 am Pacific Time.

Topic:  Marsha Lederman Book Presentation of “Kiss The Red Stairs: The Holocaust, Once Removed”

Marsha Lederman, Author, Kiss the Red Stairs: The Holocaust, Onc

Kiss the Red Stairs is a compelling memoir of Holocaust survival, intergenerational trauma, divorce, and discovery that will guide readers through several lifetimes of monumental change.
Marsha was five when a simple question led to a horrifying answer. Sitting in her kitchen, she asked her mother why she didn’t have any grandparents. Her mother told her the truth: the Holocaust.
Decades later, her parents dead and herself a mother to a young son, Marsha begins to wonder how much history has shaped her own life. Reeling in the wake of a divorce, she craves her parents’ help. But in their absence, she is gripped by a need to understand the trauma they suffered, and she begins her own journey into the past to tell her family’s stories of loss and resilience.

Speaker:  Marsha Lederman, Author and Journalist

Marsha Lederman is the Western Arts Correspondent for the Globe and Mail. Before joining the Globe, Lederman worked for CBC Radio, where she held a variety of positions including National Arts Reporter. Born in Toronto, she lives in Vancouver.

Jewish Learning Online (JLO)

Please join the JCCV for the initial offering of Jewish Learning Online (JLO) + virtual Discussion/Q&A.  We pair a video on a topic with a virtual discussion and Q&A lead by JCCV members and friends who are knowledgeable about the subject.  Our first JLO + virtual Discussion/Q&A features a recorded session offered by the American Jewish University on “Eradicating the Stigma of Addiction in the Jewish World.” 

Jewish stigmas around addiction and substance abuse often prevents people from addressing the problem and seeking treatment. Carl Erik Fisher, author of The Urge: Our History of Addiction, provides an authoritative, illuminating and deeply human history of addiction – a baffling and deeply misunderstood phenomenon.  He is joined by AJU’s Rabbi Sherre Hirsch as they discuss how Judaism has addressed addiction and how a more expansive nuanced and compassionate view can help combat this challenge.
