Introduction to Chassidus – Next Course Begins this Sunday

The first six week Chassidus course with Rabbi Moshe Miller at Lubavitch Chabad of Skokie was very enjoyable and a true learning experience for all of the participants. You are invited to attend the next course in this series.

This course will focus on the overall topic of “אין עוד מלבדו There is nothing beside Him - So how did we get to be here?”

Basic familiarity with Hebrew reading and translating required. This course is ideal for individuals who have some experience with learning Chassidus, whether it is simply attending shiurim at a Shul or a Chabad House, or even yeshiva graduates. Men and women are welcome.

This six week Chassidus course with Rabbi Moshe Miller will begin on January 6, 2013, and will meet on Sundays at 8pm at Lubavitch Chabad of Skokie 4059 Dempster Street.

Tuition for this course is $60. Study materials are included, and there will be homework assignments and mini tests so you can monitor your progress and your retention of the material.

Save the Date – Shabbat Dinner

On Friday, January 25, enjoy Shabbat dinner with friends, followed by an interesting presentation.

·        Do we have the basic knowledge of what the Torah expects of us in the business world, or how to conduct ourselves when it comes to money?

·        What do you know about day-to-day business ethics?

·        What happens when special situations arise, and you may need to do something questionable?

·        Has the Jewish educational system given us and our kids the tools to be good Jews in the real world?

·        Can Moses succeed on Wall Street, in the office, in the supermarket, or even in a friendly transaction between two friends?

Shalom Menorah will answer these questions and more, based on his 30 years of experience in business both in Israel and the U.S.  Shalom, who originally hails from Chicago, currently lives in Israel, where he runs his real estate and hi-tech investment company. He is on the board of the Jewish Business Ethics Center in Jerusalem.
