JLI Larger Than Life - Honouring Parents
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.
Our parents provide us with life as well as a model for human relations. Thus, the Torah demands that we shower our parents with honour and respect. Living in the “sandwich generation,” however, forces us to probe the parameters of our moral obligation to our parents. How are we to react to the prospect of aging parents who devour our time, savings, and energy? Do we have an obligation to take our parents into our homes or pay for their care and medications? Are we expected to sacrifice ourselves for an abusive parent? Understanding the unique Torah perspective on the why of honouring parents will provide much-needed clarity on how to go about doing so.

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.
