2 Lectures:

  1. What the Torah has Taught me about Communication and Relationships in the Practice of Law
    As a successful attorney, avid student of Torah and Talmud and internationally traveled motivational speaker, Mr. Rothenberg will share his personal war stories and the essential Jewish principles that have helped him navigate the most trying of relationship and communication challenges. A riveting and entertaining talk with practical take-home messages and tools for all!

  2. Wit, Wisdom and Jewish Law: Does God Have a Sense of Humor?
    Comedy is deeply connected with many of our best and worst tendencies. What makes comedy such a powerful force for good and evil, and how should we think about the ethics of offensive humor? In this presentation, Rabbi Becher will uncover the Torah and Talmudic viewpoint on humor, the positive moral value of comedy, the negative moral value of comedy, and how to tell whether or not a particular joke has “crossed the line” and why.

    Presenter: Rabbi Mordechai Becher, Adjunct Professor, Jewish Philosophy & Ethics, James Striar School, Yeshiva University
