“Please HaShem Make This The Last Tisha B’Av.” What if we really believed it could be?
Join us in viewing two powerful videos from the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.
A- First video, with presentations by Rabbi Paysach Krohn, and Rabbi Zev Leff. Shmiras Haloshon is the vital, non-negotiable and doable mitzvah that is has always been.
Look inside yourselves, identify and overcome all obstacles that distance you from this mitzvah. Each speaker offers concrete steps to take to ensure that this TishaB’Av, the participants’ awakening will result in long-lasting change.
2:45 p.m. Bikur Cholim Machizikay Hadath, 5145 S Morgan St., Seattle 98118
B – Second video, with world renowned speakers Rabbi Jonathan Rietti and Charlie Harary. These two dynamic lecturers offer a masterful presentation examining the divisive nature of negative speech and the manner in which it destroys unity. With their own unique and powerful style these lecturers leave an indelible message about the evil force exerted by loshon hora, which exerts Klal Yisroel to danger and destruction.
6:30 p.m. at Sephardic Bikur Holim, 6500 52nd Ave. S, Seattle 98118
The two segments come together in one event that will open participants’ eyes to the internal battle between golus and geulah which plays out in the everyday lives of the Jewish people. Although Hashem promises that ultimately, the side of geulah will win, the length and difficulty of the battle lies with choices of each Jew. With the inspiration flowing from this year’s event, participants will be energized to join the battle wholeheartedly and add their own special strength to the winning side. Now is the time to ride this momentum all the way to the finish line, all the way to the geulah that looms just over the horizon.
