The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute will present their new course, Money Matters: Jewish Business Ethics beginning Sunday, Jan. 29, 11 a.m. at Chabad Jewish Center, 30804 S. Coast Highway.

Rabbi Eli Goorevitch of Chabad Jewish Center will conduct the six-week course.

“The recent failures in the financial industry have drastically changed the way we think about business,” explains Goorevitch, “At JLI, we deeply believe that business should be a force for good, and that’s why we’re presenting students with timeless Talmudic insights into real-world ethical dilemmas.”

Spanning a wide range of subjects, Money Matters discusses the personal ethics of bankruptcy and freeloading. Questions regarding topics in social ethics such as living wages, insider trading, CEO compensation, and collective bargaining are some of the topics addressed.

The course 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.

Interested students may call Chabad at (949) 499 – 0770.
