Holocaust author to speak at Beth Tikvah Synagogue

84

w-beth-tikvahWestborough – Irit Schaffer, author of “Good Blood: A Journey of Healing,” will speak at Beth Tikvah Synagogue, 45 Oak St., Westborough, Sunday, Jan. 29, from 9 – 11 a.m. In her book, Schaffer shares pain and joy, and fear and forgiveness in her deeply personal family memoir of four generations.

When Schaffer was a child, her father told her that his “good blood,” allowed him and her mother to survive the Holocaust, and heal afterwards. Her search for meaning and significance of her father’s words culminated in Schaffer writing her book: a quest into the depth of the human spirit.

Born in Israel and raised in Canada, she now lives in California. Schaffer travelled across two continents to interview relatives when writing this book.

Growing up in a family of Holocaust survivors who on a daily basis demonstrated resilience and healing powers, Schaffer’s developed an extensive background in healing outside the traditional medical-box. She is an intuitive healer and physical therapist, who has been in private practice since 1997.
