Our beloved congregant, Eric Rozenberg, grew up in Belgium, surrounded by rising anti-Semitism. In 2013, fearing for the safety of their children, he and his wife, Elsa, chose to leave everything behind and emigrate to the United States.
Before It's Too Late is Eric's love letter to his daughters. It details European events since the 1980s, the rise of anti-Semitism, the Rozenberg family's history, and how all of this led them to decide to leave Belgium for the future of their girls.
It is also a love letter to America. Well researched, compelling, intimate, and moving, this legacy book shares why Eric and his family consider their adopted home the greatest country on Earth-and why they are concerned about what they are witnessing in the United States today.
