(Newser) – Jon Gosselin swears he's been getting religion, and now he plans a public apology for his tabloid behavior. He will have an "intimate dialogue" (tickets are on sale now) with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach at a New York City synagogue tomorrow night. Boteach, who calls himself "America's Rabbi" and famously counseled Michael Jackson, hints that Jon will publicly break up with girlfriend Hailey Glassman, notes the Huffington Post.

A statement from Jon: "This forum will also allow me to illustrate the further steps I am determined to take to regain the trust and confidence of loved ones as well as the public who have watched me over the years, together with Kate, raise our eight beautiful children. I could tell you that these steps are absolutely sincere and not intended for public consumption. But I know that ultimately I will be judged not by my words but my actions."
