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).
