Elie Wiesel was known for many things - he was a Holocaust survivor, novelist, memoirist, Humanitarian and Nobel laureate. But when asked, he always said, 'I am a teacher first.' It was as a teacher and a mentor that Rabbi Dr Ariel Burger knew him. Join Ariel and Elliot Perlman as together they explore Wiesel's lessons, his philosophy on life and what it means to be a witness while staying sane. This session will transport you into Wiesel's classroom, into the heart of what made him unique, bringing you to understand the power of his humility.
