Tisha B’Av in NYC

For those of you in New York City, the Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning will be holding its annual Tisha B’Av program this Sunday from 12-3:30pm at 1 East 65th Street.

I’ll be moderating a panel at 2:30 with Jewish Week editor Gary Rosenblatt, psychoanalyst Seth Aronson, and Rabbi Abby Sosland called “Shmirat HaLashon: Personal Speech and Public Discourse.”

The event is free of charge and co-sponsored by Zeek. The full schedule is available here.
