Chabad of East Boca Raton To Offer Business Ethics Course

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A course in business ethics is set to be offered by the Chabad of East Boca a little later this month. Here is the press release just submitted to BocaNewsNow.com:

//The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present the new course Money Matters: Jewish Business Ethics. Rabbi Ruvi New of Chabad of East Boca will conduct the six course sessions at 7:30 pm on Tuesdays beginning January 24, 2012 at the Chabad of East Boca.

“The recent failures in the financial industry have drastically changed the way we think about business,” said Rabbi New. “JLI believes that business should be a force for good, and that’s why we’re presenting students with timeless Talmudic insights into real-world ethical dilemmas.”

Spanning a wide range of intriguing subjects, Money Matters discusses the personal ethics of bankruptcy and freeloading asking questions such as: After purchasing a ticket for a ball game, can you move to an unoccupied, higher-priced seat? If you ever have the money are you morally obliged to repay discharged debt?  Questions regarding topics in social ethics such as living wages, insider trading, CEO compensation, and collective bargaining are also addressed.

“Markets need morals, and morals are not made by markets. They are made by schools, the media, custom, tradition, religious leaders, moral role models and the influence of people,” said the British Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks, “Jewish ethics has a long past and a massive resource of wisdom. That is why courses such as JLI’s Money Matters: Jewish Business Ethics are so important.”

Like all JLI programs, Money Matters 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 561-417-7797 or visit www.myJLI.com for registration and other course-related information.//
