      Esther Faber grew up in the shadow of her grandparents' warm, Jewish home and retains many fond memories of the Jewish holidays.

      After high school, she spent a traumatic year in Israel, in the wake of the Sinai Campaign, feeling cold and lonely on an isolated kibbutz. It was not completely a bad experience, though, as Esther learned Hebrew and learned her first lesson about addictions, food in this case.

      After her marriage ended, Esther needed a job and ended up working with children with severe emotional problems, leading the way to a graduate degree in psychology, and a thirty-year career as a marriage and family therapist.

      At around the same time, Esther started dabbling in meditation, learning to listen to her inner self in a deep way while meditating.

      The most recent turn her spiritual journey has taken is studying the Torah. For the past three years, Esther began studying the Torah twice a week, with the lessons quickly becoming the highlights of her week.

      Esther's message: Life is all about refining who we are, continuously learning to make good choices and be true to our inner selves.

      Bonus: Tune in to hear Esther and Judy discuss the animal sacrifices described in the Torah. Each has an interesting take!
