CHAI MITZVAH

STARTING MONDAY, AUGUST 24, 2020

Join us for this educational program sponsored by the Beth Shalom Sisterhood.  Chai Mitzvah is an adult Jewish engagement initiative, asking the question, “What do you want your adult Jewish life to look like?” and guides participants in answering that question through study, spirituality and social action. . This year's program is entitled Business Ethics. These classes are held once a month, usually the second Monday evening of the month. Business Ethics reflects on our personal as well as our professional choices. As we turn our attention to the world of Jewish business ethics we reflect on who we are, where we have been, and where we plan to go next.

The class will be on Zoom for as long as we need to follow the CDC guidelines. Once you register, Marsha Fish will contact you with the Zoom Link. Our goal is to educate, enlighten, and encourage our participants to learn and to act upon those values and spiritual beliefs that create the total person.

If intersted, please contact Marsha Fish at marmarfish@aol.com for further details
