About the book: Witness: Lessons from Elie Wiesel’s Classroom is a testament to the way Wiesel shaped the thoughts and principles of a generation. This immensely hopeful book grants insights into the influences behind Wiesel’s own beliefs. Burger entreats readers to remember that Wiesel sought to spur people to act; that it is not enough to just be mindful of the existence of good and evil.

About the author: Ariel Burger is a writer, teacher, and rabbi whose work combines spirituality, creativity, and strategies for social change. A lifelong student of Elie Wiesel, Burger now applies those teachings to urgent contemporary questions. When not learning or teaching, he enjoys creating music, art, and poetry. He and his family live outside of Boston.

This event is made possible by a partnership with URI Hillel, URI College of Arts and Sciences, URI Health Services, URI Women’s Center, URI Gender and Sexuality Center, URI Multicultural Student Services Center, URI Chaplains Association, URI Office of the Provost, URI Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies, Kappa Delta Pi: International Honor Society in Education, URI Psychology Department, URI Housing and Residential Life, URI Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity, and Congregation Beth David.
This event takes place during the week of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
