Stories from her past and present that inspired her to become the prominent Jewish woman we all love and a true woman of spirit!

America’s best-loved therapist, Dr. Ruth, is known for her wise counsel on all matters of the heart. Hear her share pri-vate stories from her past and her present, and her insights into living life to the fullest, at any age.

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth as the most famous and trusted sex therapist, but few people know that she narrowly es-caped death from the Holocaust, was raised in an orphan-age in Switzerland, or that she was a sniper during Israel’s War of Independence. After years spent as a student in Paris, Dr. Ruth came to America dreaming of a new life though never expecting the dramatic turns that would take place.

Through intimate and funny stories, this eighty-seven year young Jewish woman of spirit will shed light on how she’s learned to live a life filled with joie de vivre. Hear how you, too, can learn to deal with tragedy and loss, challenges and success, all while nourishing an intellectual and emotional spark, and, above all, having fun!
