Lunch and Learn

"Ethics for Our Time"
This year we will explore this unique Tractate of the Mishnah also known as The Ethics of Our Fathers. In the vast rabbinic and ethical literature of the Jewish people, nothing has been studied so conscientiously and with so much enjoyment as this book. Our discussion will focus on the teachings of this work and how it applies to our lives today.
Taught by Rabbi Cohen
At : Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP (Hosted by Howard Lanznar)
525 West Monroe Street, 19th Fl. (Corner of Monroe and Canal)
Parking : 500 W. Monroe (Across the Street)

"A Taste of Talmud"
The Talmud is the ultimate proof of that old joke about two Jews having three opinions. This is our chance to jump into that debate. We will study pages of the Talmud (in translation, don't worry!), focusing as much on the flavor of the discussion as on its content, and we will learn how each page records debates of individuals with different perspectives and conversations that reach across many generations. Within our discussion of each page, we will have a chance not only to witness the creativity of the rabbis of old but also to see how very relevant their discussions are to our modern-day lives. Whether the Talmud is a mystery to you or you've encountered a page of Talmud before and would like to go deeper, this is your chance to get a taste of how the Talmud works.
Taught by Rabbi Segal
At : Temple Jeremiah
Lunch : Bring a Bag Lunch (if you choose)
Beverages and Dessert Provided
RSVP : not required, but helpful
