A noted rabbi will visit Oklahoma City on Sunday for a special Thanksgiving holiday-themed presentation.
Rabbi Lazer Brody will give a presentation titled “In HaShem We Trust: The Universal Message of Thanksgiving” at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Montgomery Event Center in downtown Oklahoma City.
Brody, of Ashdod, Israel, is known as the “English voice” of Rabbi Shalom Arush, a renowned author and faith leader who also lives in Israel.
Brody is the English translator of Arush's best-selling book “The Garden of Emuna” and other books by Arush.
Brody hosts a radio show called “Lazer Beams” on Israel National Radio. He also is a lecturer and author who travels all over the world to discuss Emuna — faith in God.
Louis “Lazer” Green is a metro-area resident who is helping to promote the event which is being called the “Oklahoma Emuna Project.” He said Brody speaks regularly to godly people of all faiths. Green said he is hoping the free event being held at a neutral location like the event center will draw people from different backgrounds.
Green said Brody spoke at Emanuel Synagogue in June and was so well-received that several Oklahoma City area residents worked to bring him back to the metro. He said “The Garden of Emuna,” which Arush originally wrote in Hebrew and Brody translated into English, has become a worldwide sensation and subsequently been translated into several languages. He said the book resonates with people of all faiths.
