You should do business. You should make as much money as you can. But you should do it right. The Torah offers a blueprint for ‘kosher business’ that shows great insight into the nature of commerce – sometimes shocking but always logical. Join Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder and a warm, welcoming group of learners Fridays at 12:20 -1:00 pm at the IPS building, 1871 Foslom Ave for a class about Torah and the ethics of the marketplace. No need to RSVP. Bring a lunch if you like. $10 suggested donation per class. First class is Friday, 9/3; no class on Friday 9/10 (Rosh HaShanah).
This upcoming Wednesday and Thursday is the holiday of Shavuot, which is the anniversary of the giving of Torah at Mount Sinai.
In this week's Torah portion we read a section that begins by telling us the rewards for studying Torah and observing the commandments.
