What a blessing to share an enlightened conversation with the great rabbi Ben Kamin (read his book!). This was a very moving program for me as we touched on both personal grief, and collective loss. Ben has a huge and generous heart and he shared profoundly on this topic and so much more. There is a lot of wisdom in this one to unpack.
