Capitalism, Socialism….Judaism?

JLI Fall Class held at Chabad of NW Metro Denver
JLI Fall Class held at Chabad of NW Metro Denver

Chabad of NW Metro Denver is a week away from beginning one of JLI’s (Jewish Learning Institute) most exciting courses, Money Matters.

This six session course is really important to anyone who is looking for a Jewish compass into so many of the fundamental issues that define us as a society.

  • What does the Torah have to say about your salary? Do you have a right to earn as much as possible? The answer may surprise you.
  • Is it ever ethical to borrow without repaying? What about bankruptcy? What’s the Jewish legal perspective?
  • What does Jewish law have to say about unions, collective bargaining, and strikes? Does the type of industry make a difference?
  • What about freeloading? Is it wrong to take the time of a shopkeeper or salesperson if you have no intention of buying? Can you move to more expensive vacant seats at a ball-game?

In typical JLI fashion each lesson is presented using clear and well laid out student text books and cutting-edge power point presentations.

Still not convinced that this course will change the way you see the world? Come to the first lesson at no cost and only pay only if you choose to continue the course.

The course begins Wednesday January 25th from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm and will take place at Chabad of NW Metro Denver, 4505 W 112th Ave in Westminster and continues for the following five Wednesdays at the same time.
