TONIGHT: Rav Meir Triebitz: Mussar Movement & development of psychological sensitivity

Rav Triebitz will be speaking this Thursday  regarding the Seridei Aish's discussion of the development of the Mussar Movement and Dr. Steven Pinker views on the reduction of violence and increased empathy. It will take place at 8:30 at the home of Dr. Baruch Shulem. I am sending out the source material to those who have notified me that they are attending.
