JLI Larger Than Life - Charity
Time & location
About the event
This interactive class was created by The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute and is part of a six-week course. You are welcome to attend the whole course or just the single class.
All men are not created equal—monetarily, that is. For a host of reasons, some controllable, others not, some human beings are financially better off than their fellows. One of the ways we narrow the divide is through charity, which has always been a quintessential Jewish value. It is well established that Jews give to charitable causes in remarkably lopsided numbers in comparison to the general population. The uniqueness of Judaism, however, lies not only in its emphasis on the deed of charity, but also in its fascinating perspective on philanthropy. According to Jewish thought, charity is as much for the benefit of the benefactor as it is for the recipient. This lesson explores the unique Jewish philosophical angle on charity and how that plays out in real life.

This course explores key Jewish values that have shaped the moral compass of Western society. Focusing on areas outside the domain of the synagogue and Jewish ritual, we will explore what it means to live as a Jew in our everyday life and the Torah view of our social and ethical responsibilities.
Each lesson will contain an applicable, resonant, change-your-daily-life personal takeaway message for everyone who attends.
