The Jewish Learning Institute is offering a six-week “Money Matters” course on Jewish business ethics and their application to everyday economics.

“The recent failures in the financial industry have drastically changed the way we think about business,” said Rabbi Yossi Shemtov, JLI instructor and rabbi at Toledo’s Chabad House-Lubavitch. “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.”
