Sacred Housekeeping with Harriet Rossetto
Listen to interview [audio player below] with host Eric Michaels & guest Harriet Rossetto discuss the following:
Harriet Rossetto is a rebel spirit. She is a self-professed misfit who felt she was operating her life on the fringe. It is there that she found her fierce calling: helping broken souls and changing a broken system.
Harriet received her Masters in Social Work from the University of Minnesota in 1964. A social worker with a strong Jewish identity, Harriet answered what would be a life-altering classified ad in the Los Angeles Times looking for “a person of a Jewish background to help incarcerated Jewish offenders.” Harriet soon recognized that most of the Jews in jail committed crimes as a by-product of what she’s coined the “dis-ease” of addiction. Frustrated by the lack of resources, she embraced the unpopular cause, fighting the widespread denial that “nice Jewish men and women” could be addicts and criminals in need of rehabilitation. A woman of passion, vision, and action, this fight took on the form of Beit T’Shuvah: The House of Return.
