Next Wednesday, February 23th, Chabad of Minneapolis will host 2 short lectures with world-renowned Rabbi Manis Friedman, author of the well-known book Doesn’t Anyone Blush Anymore?
Part of Chabad’s Jewish Survival Kit lecture series, Rabbi Friedman will speak on 2 subjects, one after the other (For only half an hour each! How’s that for “speed learning”?):
Israel: The Agony and The Ecstasy
Is The World Becoming Antisemitic Again?
Rabbi Manis Friedman is a well-known scholar of Jewish mysticism, and achieved international prominence with his book Doesn’t Anyone Blush Anymore? Reclaiming Intimacy, Modesty, and Sexuality. Rabbi Friedman is currently best known as a popular speaker on marriage, intimacy, and finding lasting love, teaching workshops for couples and singles around the nation. He is also the founder and dean of longtime Minnesota institution Bais Chana Institute of Jewish Studies – the world’s first yeshiva exclusively for women.
This event (and this speaker!) sound like they’re not to be missed!
The half-hour lectures will be held at the Minneapolis Chabad Center in Minnetonka at 7:30 pm.
More information, as well as RSVP details, are available on the Chabad Minneapolis website.

I heard him speak before, he is a great speaker!
He definitely isn’t to be missed. Especially when he says things like:
“I don’t believe in western morality, i.e. don’t kill civilians or children, don’t destroy holy sites, don’t fight during holiday seasons, don’t bomb cemeteries, don’t shoot until they shoot first because it is immoral. The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: Destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children”
So glad you guys think this is someone worth listening to.
