In the latest episode of the Neshamos Podcast, shliach Rabbi Avremi Zippel opens up about his internal journey, and shares how he healed from child abuse and learned to reconnect with himself and with Hashem.
To anyone keeping up to date with current news, the name Avremi Zippel surely sounds familiar.
Rabbi Avremi grew up on shlichus in Salt Lake City, Utah. Zippel is a survivor of child abuse, something he kept secret for a long time. After getting married, moving on shlichus, and becoming a father, he eventually chose to go public with his story, impacting hundreds of people and becoming an advocate for mental health and survivors of abuse in the process.
In the latest episode of the Neshamos Podcast, Rabbi Zippel opens up about his internal journey, how his self-image shaped his experience and outlook, and how he healed and learned to reconnect with himself and with Hashem.
“When you get to a position where your experiences can provide something for someone else, it is the single greatest blessing you can hope to attain as a human being,” Zippel reflects. His goal is to inspire and lend strength to other survivors of molestation–and this episode is a powerful step in that direction for those with a similar experience to his.
Launched in early 2020, the Neshamos podcast is where one gets to listen to personal experiences of those who have been affected by mental illness and/or addiction – the pain, the struggle to get better – and today, Boruch Hashem, have emerged with a message of hope and healing.
Episodes are released on a bi-weekly basis and are available on the Neshamos.org website or wherever you normally go to listen to your podcasts. Be sure to subscribe to be in the loop when a new episode is released.
