A Jew­ish girl saved in infan­cy by a Catholic cou­ple dur­ing the Sec­ond World War dis­cov­ered her true her­itage after the war, but remained with her adop­tive fam­i­ly. In her ear­ly twen­ties, how­ev­er, cir­cum­stances forced her to escape Poland and begin a new life in Amer­i­ca, where she mar­ried and raised a Jew­ish fam­i­ly.

With her hus­band’s unex­pect­ed death, at 53 years old Lucia Weitz­mann embarked on a spir­i­tu­al jour­ney that began with con­fronting God at the West­ern Wall. Mys­ti­cal expe­ri­ences then began to pop­u­late her dreams and writ­ings, lead­ing her to dis­cov­er who she real­ly is and what her life pur­pose is about.

Inspired by his moth­er’s expe­ri­ences and embold­ened to share its mes­sages of hope and heal­ing, Luci­a’s son tells her sto­ry in The Rose Temple.
