Course teaches soul-searching journey

Posted Monday, Feb 7th, 2011

 The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute's (JLI) new course, Toward a Meaningful Life: A Soul-Searching Journey for Every Person, is being offered at the Chabad Jewish Discovery Centre in Erindale.
The six-session course, taught by Mississauga Rabbi Yitzchok Slavin, is offered Wednesday nights beginning this week.
The classes examine the spectrum of life, personal growth, relationships, home, work, special challenges and the role of God and faith in daily existence. Each session will also examine the Torah's perspective and students will be invited to challenge their current views while considering more meaningful approaches to these topical subjects.
“The objective of this course is to teach and empower individuals of all backgrounds with new life skills based on traditional Torah thought, thereby enabling them to transform the way they view their daily lives,” said Rabbi Zalman Abraham, of JLI's headquarters in Brooklyn, New York. “The course offers an antidote to the monotony and grind of unchanging routines. It provides newfound energy and exhilaration in taking on challenges, and it offers practical strategies for developing a deeper sense of joy and satisfaction.”
