Chabad.org has launched a new blog
which will be a place for Jewish recovering addicts to meet, communicate and support each other in their recovery.
The blog will feature posts by Rabbi Ben A. and Rabbi Yisrael Pinson. The blog will eventually graduate to a full fledged mini site, with sections on Judaism and recovery, voices of recovery where Jewish recovering addicts will share their experience, strength and hope, resources and links, and a place to connect with a local Jewish recovery community.
Rabbi Yisrael Pinson is the Director of the Daniel B. Sobel Friendship House in West Bloomfield, MI. Since joining the Friendship House in May, 2002 he has helped create a local Jewish recovery community where recovering addicts are helped through support, guidance, friendship and community. Rabbi Yisrael facilitates Jewish recovery meetings, where recovering addicts from all 12-step programs meet and share regularly. He also teaches classes on Judaism & recovery.
Rabbi Ben A. is the most famous anonymous Rabbi. Under his AA pen name, Ben A. draws from his personal experience in recovery to incorporate unique Chassidic philosophy into the practice of the 12 steps.Click here to read the new blog
