Share 92Y Live with Eric Kandel, Elie Wiesel & Dr. Gail Saltz: Mind, Body & Soul

Event Details

Congregation Kol Haverim of Glastonbury, Conn., is proud and pleased to partner with the 92 St Y and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) to bring a series of live interactive broadcasts to the Greater Hartford community. Live from NY's 92nd Street Y™, now in its ninth year, is a series of lectures, interviews, panels, and readings featuring newsmakers, political figures, opinion-shapers and authors who discuss the issues and events that affect our lives. Using satellite technology, the 92Y simultaneously broadcasts their renowned educational and cultural programming to community organizations across America. 

We will kick off the series on Sunday, November 4, with a panel discussion about the mysteries of memory. Psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, columnist, best-selling author and television commentator, Dr. Gail Saltz will talk with special guests Eric Kandel and Elie Wiesel to explore what it means to be human, with a focus on healing, feeling, fortitude and fitness. How does the mind remember? Why are memories so vital to human beings? Can we alter or enhance our memories? What happens to memories over time? Explore both the biological and emotional aspects of the human memory with the world’s most knowledgeable authorities on the subject.

Eric Kandel won the Nobel Prize in 2000 for his research on the physiological basis of memory storage in neurons. He is the author of the award-winning In Search of Memory, among other books. Elie Wiesel is a novelist, journalist and Nobel Prize winner. Chairman of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council from 1980 - 1986, he serves on numerous boards of trustees and advisors.

Our evening at Congregation Kol Haverim will begin with refreshments at 6:45pm, with the broadcast starting at 7:30pm. Most 92Y Live programs run about 75 to 90 minutes. We also invite you stay after for dessert and discussion. 

This event is open to all. We are excited to share this fascinating discussion with the Greater Hartford community, and beyond!
