You’re invited to a Weekend with Charlie Kramer at Temple Beth Avodah in Newton Centre!

Charlie Kramer was diagnosed with a progressive visual disability (Retinitis Pigmentosa) at the age of 5, and declared legally blind when he was 15. He worked as a musical artist and spiritual leader in the Jewish community for many years and found that through music he was able to connect with people, to share his story, and bring awareness, acceptance, and have incredible conversations. This opened the door and guided him to what is now his true passion and life’s work: to work as a coach helping others who are struggling to accept their disabilities, to uncover the positive, and own that part of themselves.
