PSA: Two Upcoming Boston Events

I've been meaning to let people know about two upcoming events in the Boston area that might be of interest. By an odd coincidence, both of them are happening right around my birthday.

The first event is an appearance by none other than Neil deGrasse Tyson, the demoter of Pluto, at the Newton Free Library. Tyson will be speaking on Thursday, February 27th at 7:30 pm and then signing copies of his new book The Pluto Files. Nomi and I plan to be there to hear him speak, get the book signed, and maybe (if he's willing) get a picture taken with him.

More information on the event can be found at this link.

(Our thanks to 530nm330hz for bringing this to our attention.)

The second event is a special shabbaton taking place at our shul. Rabbi Yitzchok Breitowitz, who is the rabbi at the Woodside Synagogue in Silver Spring, Maryland, and a tenured professor at the Maryland School of Law, is coming for the weekend of February 27-March 1. He'll be giving a variety of talks on the intersection of Jewish law and secular law, and the topics include ethical behavior in the marketplace and stem cell research.

"The first event is an appearance by none other than Neil deGrasse Tyson, the demoter of Pluto."

When you say it like that, it sounds like you really want to say "Destroyer of Worlds!" :)

I just think of him as the NOVA Science NOW guy.
