UK to Join New Worldwide JLI Course: Portraits in Leadership

Thursday, 14 January, 2010 - 1:14 pm

jli2.jpgThis February, the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will launch its winter course, Portraits in Leadership: Timeless Tales for Inspired Living. 

Portraits in Leadership is a study of the inspiring life story of six figures whose courage and determination helped Judaism weather its darkest hours. In the face of the first-century Roman assault on Jerusalem, the fundamental institutions of the Jewish people were utterly destroyed. But with wisdom and verve, these leaders took the radical steps that managed to preserve the essence of Judaism to this very day.

“Students are constantly looking for tools to deal with day-to-day challenges,” says local JLI instructor, Rabbi Bentzi Sudak who will be teaching the course in the City at Deloitte.

“What better way to find guidance than from the wise example of others who encountered hardships and used them as the impetus for growth and change.”

Lessons will examine a range of classic Jewish sources, drawing extensively from the stories of the Talmud and modern commentaries that point out their personal significance to our lives.

Portraits in Leadership, like all JLI’s courses, is designed for people at all levels of Jewish knowledge. Participants without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning can attend and enjoy this course. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not to be a member of any particular synagogue or denomination.

The couse will be taught at various locations across London as well as in Leeds in early February and potential students are welcome to call (020) 7078 7469 for more information, or email
