Westminster, CO: The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present Living with Integrity: Navigating Everyday Ethical Dilemmas, the institute’s new six-session winter 2013 course that will begin on Wednesday January 30th.

Spiritual leader of Chabad of NW Metro Denver Rabbi Benjy Brackman will conduct the six course sessions.

Each course is ninety minutes and held weekly on Wednesday evenings at Chabad of NW Metro Denver 4505 W 112th Ave. Westminster.

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 Benjy Brackman. “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.

Mr. Brandon Marinoff – a local lawyer – is really excited about joining the course.

I have attended many of the JLI courses and have enjoyed the course content and Rabbi Brackman’s delivery style, but this course will be especially meaningful as it will allow me as a criminal defense attorney to see Judaism’s perspective on many legal issues I deal with on a constant basis.”

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.

Living with Integrity is a credited CLE course with the supreme court CLJE ,for 11 general credits and 7 ethics credits making it a great opportunity for professionals to acquire their required credits.

Interested students may call 720 984 5805 or visit www.myJLI.com for registration and other course-related information.
