Rabbi Daniel Landes in New York!
Melekhet Makhshevet: Integrating Judaism and our Lives at Work
Tuesday, November 15th 7:30-9:00 PM
Drisha: 37 West 65th Street, 5th Floor

What is the value of work? Does Judaism have a notion of a “calling?” How can I be a more moral boss, employee, and colleague? Can any job be part of a spiritual path? Whether you’re deciding on a career path or already on one, join Rabbi Landes in the Drisha beit midrash to examine how you can integrate the wisdom of Jewish tradition into your work day. Through intensive text study and rich conversation, we will put mindfulness to work, and challenge our community to enrich the workplace with Judaism’s teachings and core values. Come join the discussion!
