Please note that we cannot accept walk-in participants. Please register in advance. Registration costs $5.


Jewish ethics focuses not just on what we do, but on who we are. Character traits are essential to living a moral and holy life. Join us as we explore such questions as: What kind of human beings are we asked to be? What is the relationship between right actions and right intentions? Why is law necessary, but not sufficient to Judaism’s vision of a religious life? Should we assess our leaders primarily by their accomplishments or their character?
