We are pleased to announce that we have engaged Dennis Prager, author, columnist and radio host—internationally celebrated for his wit and wisdom—as our speaker.
The title of Dennis Prager’s lecture is: “Happiness is a Mitzvah, Not an Emotion.”
Dennis is widely sought after by television shows for his opinions. He’s appeared on Larry King Live, Hardball, Hannity’s America, CBS Evening News, The Today Show and many others.
Dennis is the author of several best sellers including the seminal work on anti-Semitism, Why the Jews, co-written with Joseph Telushkin. Happiness Is A Serious Problem, Think A Second Time, and The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism, also co-written with Joseph Telushkin.
More important to us is a personal connection. Ariel was an enthusiastic fan of Dennis’ radio show. During our son’s long illness, when he was confined at home and in the hospital, Ariel listened to Dennis on a regular basis and commented: “There’s a lot of Torah in what Dennis says.”
We look forward to seeing all our friends and relatives at the lecture.
There is no better way of honoring Ariel’s memory than by participating in this lecture series.
May Ariel’s neshama have an aliyah.
The lecture and brunch are courtesy of the Avrech Family and Friends.
