Yom Kippur Panel Discussion
Monday, September 28
1pm – Zoom  

Can We Agree to Disagree?

We read different news, hold different opinions, and vote for different candidates. And yet, on Yom Kippur we all stand together:
One community, One People, One Jewish tradition.

Learn from those whose professional lives are dedicated to helping people find consensus, compromise, and understanding of one another – even though we may still disagree.

Our panelists include:

George Weisz, consensus builder, businessman and legislator
Amy Lieberman, Esq., mediator and Executive Director of Insight Employment Mediation LLC
Karen Fox, Rabbi, Coach, Marriage and Family Therapist
Moderated by Rabbi Sara Mason-Barkin
