Clean Speech Colorado Brings Speakers to Boulder

We’ve all been told that if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But how can we express ourselves effectively and empathetically while addressing critical social issues? And what can Jewish wisdom teach us about how gossip affects our relationships, our communities, and our home environment?

November marks the launch of “Clean Speech Colorado,” a new state-wide initiative convening 65 organizations in our community to to create a more peaceful and productive community. Our goals:

  • Clean Up Our Discourse
  • Foster Healthy Discussion
  • Unite as One People

Join Clean Speech Colorado on Wednesday November 6 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm for Bringing it All HOME at HW Home with NINA & SAL LITVAK, The Accidental Talmudist.

SALVADOR LITVAK

Sal Litvak

Sal was born in Santiago, Chile and moved to New York at age five. He is a graduate of Harvard College, NYU Law, and UCLA Film. His first movie was the Passover comedy and cult hit, “When Do We Eat?” His most recent film, “Saving Lincoln,” explores the close friendship between Abraham Lincoln and his bodyguard Ward Hill Lamon. Sal wrote both films with his wife, Nina Davidovich Litvak. Sal also speaks and blogs as the Accidental Talmudist. He produces weekly live shows and shares a daily bit of Jewish wisdom, history or humor with over a million fans.

NINA LITVAK

Nina Litvak

Nina grew up in New York City and graduated from Columbia University. She co-wrote When Do We Eat? and Saving Lincoln. She writes content for and co-manages the vibrant Accidental Talmudist community. Nina’s latest project is “Guns & Moses,” a thriller about a Chassidic rabbi who must solve a murder.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
