Rabbi's Education Series: Jewish Ethics of Speech, Sunday, December 10th

posted Oct 22, 2017, 7:16 AM by Larry Finkelstein   [ updated Dec 28, 2017, 6:41 PM ]


Rabbi Julie Greenberg will lead a series of six education workshops this year with the overall theme of Jewish Ethics.

"Rabbi Shimon said: There are three crowns: the crown of Torah, the crown of priesthood, and the crown of kingship. And the crown of a good name is superior to them all (lit., 'goes up above them')." (Pirkey Avot 4:17) How do choices about speech allow us to protect our own "good name" or integrity and also the good reputations of others? Speaking with care, respect and accountability sustains the dignity of each individual and the community. This is an essential Jewish value, yet easier said than done. Join us for a communal exploration of the important Jewish teachings about right speech. A reading handout will be provided before the first class.
