Are You an Ethical Person? New Course to be Offered at the Jewish Learning Centre

Jan 24, 2012

The Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present Living with Integrity: Navigating Everyday Ethical Dilemmas, the institute’s new six-session Winter 2013 course, beginning January 29, 2013.

Rabbi Shmuly Altein of Chabad-Lubavitch will conduct the six course sessions at 7:30 pm on Tuesdays, at the Jewish Learning Centre. The course fee is $79.00 and includes a valuable student textbook. Lawyers may report this course for Continued Professional Development and to meet the EPPM requirement of MCPD.

“There’s a lot of talk about ethics for government and big corporations, but almost every day we confront complex ethical decisions in our own relationships,” said Rabbi Zalman Abraham of JLI’s headquarters in Brooklyn. “From Nanny cams to our responsibilities to our parents, Living with Integrity will provide a framework for making balanced decisions for ourselves and for the people we care about.”

Packed with real-life scenarios, Living with Integrity challenges students to articulate their own opinions, while providing practical Talmudic wisdom to help them navigate through life’s inevitable ethical challenges. This course will not only provide the tools to make appropriate decisions, it will also enhance their interaction with family and friends.

Like all previous JLI programs, Living with Integrity is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call
204-339-8737 or visit www.ChabadWinnipeg.org for registration and other course-related information.

Motivated by a profound love for every Jew and spurred by a boundless optimism, Chabad-Lubavitch touches and enriches the lives of young and old, professionals and laypeople, the affiliated and the non-affiliated, immigrants and long-time citizens, regardless of background, affiliation, or level of commitment.

The Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), the adult education arm of Chabad-Lubavitch and a partner agency of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, was created in 2008 to address the growing need for in-depth Jewish knowledge. JLI aims at changing the way people feel about being Jewish through learning and discovery.

As the pre-eminent provider of adult Jewish learning in Winnipeg, JLI’s mission is to make the wisdom of Jewish learning accessible to everyone. “The Jewish Learning Institute allows you to explore basic Jewish ideas, to share critical analysis and interactive discussion with exciting instructors and classmates,” said Mr. David Chochinov, chairman of the local JLI committee.
