A rosh yeshiva at RIETS, Rabbi Adler, who occupies The Eva, Morris and Jack K. Rubin Memorial Chair in Rabbinics, will speak on “Mechila in Human and Halachic Terms: How Can I Ever Forgive You? Can I Not?” at Weissberg Commons in Belfer Hall on YU’s Wilf Campus, 2495 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY. Rabbi Adler’s address will be webcast live at www.yu.edu/torah.

The Hausman/Stern Kinus Teshuva lecture series was established by philanthropist Judy Hausman and the late Gerson Hausman, supporters of YU and RIETS, to honor the memory of Elias J. and Mary Stern and Moshe and Chava Hausman.
