Ethics Course Looks At
Living With Integrity
Rabbi Shneur Silberberg of West
Bloomfield's Tugman Bais Chabad Torah
Center, in partnership with the Rohr
Jewish Learning
Institute (JLI) and
Federation's Alliance
for Jewish Education,
is offering a six-week
course that will
delve into the Jewish
perspective on life's
tough decisions.
Rabbi Shneur
Topics include:
Should you for-
give someone who
harmed you when you cannot do so
sincerely? Should you lie to avoid hurting
your parents' feelings, protect your kids
from a frightening truth or keep a dying
man from knowing his fate?
The course, Living with Integrity:
Navigating Everyday Ethical Dilemmas,
begins during the week of Jan. 27.
Silberberg will conduct the classes twice
weekly: Sunday morning at the Bais
Chabad Torah Center and Thursday eve-
ning at the Jewish Federation building in
Bloomfield Township.
Living with Integrity is intended to
appeal to people at all levels of Jewish
knowledge, including those without
any prior experience or background in
Jewish learning. Attendees need not be
affiliated with a particular synagogue,
temple or other house of worship.
Two local judges approved the course,
geared toward laypeople but also offer-
ing continuing legal education credit for
Retired Oakland Circuit Judge Edward
Sosnick said that the wisdom of the
Torah and Talmud "continue to guide
and direct us through the many difficult
decisions we make in pursuing an ethi-
cal life:'
Federal Judge Avern Cohn added,
"The more education we have, the better
we are as people. This course helps us to
achieve that goal:'
The course will cover six topics: pri-
vacy, forgiveness, parents, charity, honest
and commitments. Scholarships are
available. For information or to register,
call (248) 207-5513 or visit baischabad.
