Jewish Ethics

with Rabbi Michael Holzman
Tuesdays, October 20; November 10, 24; December 8; January 12, 26; February 9, 23; March 9, 23; April 13, 27; May 11
7:30-9:00pm

Jewish text, tradition, and culture have a lot to say about how we conduct our lives, from our personal relationships to our business practices, to our obligations to the world at large. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin has been a collector of these ideas for over 40 years and his Code of Jewish Ethics is an accessible and instructive gateway to this body of Jewish thought. From the Torah to contemporary voices, Telushkin has organized a huge swath of our tradition into usable categories to help guide tough decisions and complicated situations. While the book can be studied alone, we will sample sections of Volume 1 of Telushkin’s (2 volume) book and discuss the various perspectives. Purchase of the book is not required but is recommended.
