Are you on the lookout for a funny, engaging, and socially relevant speaker for your next event? One who gets the audience to open their hearts and minds to feel and understand just a bit more from the perspective of others, while appreciating the value of what they have in their own lives?
Rabbi Binyomin Scheiman, State Prison Chaplain for over 35 years, has seen it all. Not only does he have endless stories about a slice of life many of us, thankfully, never see — he draws insights from his encounters about the nature of human existence and the meaning of our efforts, no matter where we find ourselves.
He also develops new empathy for the struggles of inmates, ex-offenders, and their families — as they experience the deep shame and isolation of incarceration — in the case of the families and especially children, through no fault of their own.
As Director of the HINDA Institute, an organization that supports ex-offenders’ healthy re-entry to society and re-integration with family and community, he and his staff open the door to hope for many in his home state of Illinois.
Rabbi Scheiman has spoken to communities around the country, sharing his experiences, inspiration and advice culled from decades of working with people on the margins of society. He is available to address your organization on a variety of pertinent social justice issues or just for inspiration.
