From Hate to Healing: Arno’s Transformation

In this episode of Nonviolence Radio, we broadcast a talk by Arno Michaelis from Shomerei Torah, a synagogue in Santa Rosa, California. Arno describes his personal journey beginning with his involvement in white supremacist hate groups to how he managed to turn his life around, and how others like him are capable of doing the same. His life is now dedicated to building a diverse, healthy, and healed world. This talk raises many complex questions about restorative justice, the power of healing, and community justice.
