How can we better understand ourselves; make ourselves known to the people we love, deepen and uplift our relationships, and heal what may be broken between us? We can write forever letters. Forever letters share our wisdom and personal stories; express our love and gratitude; accept responsibility for misunderstandings and hurts; ask for forgiveness and forgive.

Elana Zaiman is the first woman rabbi from a family spanning six generations of rabbis. Her book The Forever Letter: Writing What You Believe for Those You Love, published by Llewellyn Worldwide, has been endorsed by Jack Canfield, Dr. Parker J. Palmer, Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman, Reverend Susan Sparks, Rabbi Angela Buchdahl, Rabbi David Wolpe and others. Elana travels throughout the U.S. and Canada as a scholar-in-residence, speaker, and workshop facilitator


“I find it hard to imagine that there are many other people who can be so ‘on’ – high energy and passionate – in front of groups and yet so present and compassionate one-on-one. Elana is a rarity – a naturally gifted teacher with real wisdom to share and an ability to connect with people of all ages. She is both inspired and inspiring”.
– Rachel Brodie, Writer and Educator, San Francisco, CA

“Elana’s workshop was excellent. It got me thinking. And combined with her confidence, positivity, and engaging personality inspired me to write a couple of letters!”
– Karl Flaccus, Flaccus Law, Seattle, WA

“Writing my first forever letter was like building a nest of everything I wanted to relay to my daughter: my love for her, my vulnerabilities as a mother, my wishes of strength and beauty and a smoother road ahead. It’s a truth-tellers love letter – not always easy to craft, not without wavering and tears, but the finish line is like no other.”
– Ann Teplick, writer, Seattle, WA
