Pesach (Philip) Kirschner was born a Jew, but raised secular.  Growing up, he studied, partied, and led an independent life.  He became an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and was a volunteer fireman.  When the United States was attacked on September 11th, 2001, Pesach responded and paid the price; breathing in all the toxic fumes, he suffers today from several health issues.  The raw and graphic things he saw and experienced when he was doing his search and rescue operation, will touch you and have an affect on you.  Dealing with these difficult memories. and suffering from recurring nightmares, Pesach started looking for G-d.  Living and working with non-Jews, he got involved in Christianity, but soon found his way back to Torah and Judaism.  Hear this interesting story of a man who came home through a search that took him a different route to Torah and his new future awaiting him.
