Sandy Eisenberg Sasso – The Storyteller

As a spiritual leader who has served a large congregation, Sasso was called the “storytelling rabbi”. Known for her engaging stories at family services, she began to interweave deeply personal stories into her sermons. “Information you come to know, and sometimes you forget. Stories you remember; they become a part of who you are.”

In 2012 she partnered with Grammy-award-winning, singer-songwriter Carries Newcomer, to create an interfaith evening of stories and songs. The collaboration resulted in a moving evening of tears and laughter as two sisters in spirit created narrative and music for the soul.
