December 16, 2020

Michael Liben is a filmmaker who emigrated to Israel from New York. He teaches high school film classes where Jewish and Arab students collaborate to make movies. He is also a father who is living with the death of a child. Today, he joins us to talk about how he copes with the passing of his daughter Liel, the fellowship he’s found with others in the bereaved community, his decision to donate Liel's organs, podcasting and finding support online. Plus, our own Jamie Alcroft shares wisdom he gained while waiting for and receiving his previously enjoyed donor heart.
