Congregation Rodeph Sholom, Bridgeport, and Congregation B’nai Torah, Trumbull, will present Newtown author and motivational speaker, CJ Golden on Wednesday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m., at Congregation B’nai Torah, 5700 Main St., Trumbull.

Golden will discuss her inspirational biography, “Reflections From Beyond ~ Sharing a Message of Hope, Peace and Kindness,” the story of the near-death experience of Tracy LaCroix. His journey is fascinating and uplifting, and CJ Golden presents it in a “brilliant, effective and positive, life and death affirming work.”

“CJ Golden’s passion and articulateness are evident in each segment of her delivery. Her message is both timely and all too often taken for granted,” noted Rabbi Saul B. Saulson, Temple Shalom, New Milford. This program is being sponsored through a grant from UJA/Federation of Eastern Fairfield County.

Refreshments and a book signing will follow the program. Reservations are not required, but for planning purposes, are appreciated. For additional information or to place your reservations, call either B’nai Torah at 203-268-6940, or Rodeph Sholom at 203-334-0159.
