Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma

By Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone and Gabor Maté

In this beautiful conversation, two impassioned trauma specialists and authors, Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone and Dr. Gabor Maté, shared personal experiences and professional challenges working with the burgeoning field of trauma healing across generations. They discussed their families, what propelled them to the work they do, and the transformation that is possible in ourselves and the world when we heal the wounds of the past. Rabbi Firestone’s award-winning book, Wounds into Wisdom, newly released in paperback, and Dr. Maté’s best-selling The Myth of Normal have both been lauded as foundational works and informed this candid conversation between renowned colleagues.

Facilitated by Lab/Shul founder Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie.
