Subject: Rabbi Simon Jacobson Interview on the Yiddish Voice on Dec. 17

Yiddish Voice Radio Feature --

Rabbi Simon Jacobson On The Air

On December 17, at 7:30 p.m., The Yiddish Voice (WUNR-AM 1600 in Brookline,
MA) will feature an interview with Rabbi Simon Jacobson, the Lubavitcher
Rebbe's oral scribe for fourteen years, one of the foremost authorities on
the Rebbe's talks and writings, and author of the best-selling book Toward
A Meaningful Life. Rabbi Jacobson is best known for his position as head of
the team who memorized entire talks given by the Rebbe on the Sabbath and
holidays when writing and tape recordings are not permitted, and then
transcribing and publishing them for posterity. He has lectured around the
world on the topics of love, intimacy, and healthy relationships and
helping people overcome the fear of making positive changes in their lives.

In the interview Rabbi Jacobson discusses, among other topics, his recent
visit to Riga, Latvia, to address the Second International Conference on
Jews in a Changing World. The conference was sponsored by the Memorial
Foundation of New York and the Soros Foundation of Latvia, and among the
organizers were the Latvian Academy of Sciences and the Ben-Gurion
University in Beersheba.
