Area Chabads Offer New JLI Series on Modern Debates

The next Rohr Jewish Learning Institute series applies Talmudic reasoning to mind-twisting modern problems.

“The Dilemma: Modern Dilemmas, Talmudic Debates, Your Solutions” will be offered in Birmingham, Mobile and the New Orleans areas.

The course description asks, “What do you do when your gut tells you one thing, and your brain tells you another? Prepare for a mental expedition to mind-wrestle with situations that force us to choose between two reasonable truths.”

Attorneys can earn up to 9 MCLE credits.

In New Orleans, the class will meet for six Tuesdays, starting Jan. 31. Sessions are downtown at noon at Sher Garner Cahill Richter Klein and Hilbert, or at 7:30 p.m. at the Chabad Center in Metairie.

Rabbi Mendel Ceitlin will lead the course. The fee is $70 including the textbook, or $120 including the CLE credits.
