Project Zug Presents: Money and Power with Rabbi Avi Strausberg Four Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. November 30, December 7, December 14, December 21 Power and money introduce tricky dynamics and complicated moral questions into professional and personal relationships. In this session, we'll be exploring the effects of influence and how Jewish sources might advise us to respond when navigating relationships with power imbalances. We'll explore questions like: when do we speak up and when do we stay silent? When do we speak truth to power and when do we flatter to avoid conflict? What moral standards should we require from those in power and what happens when they fail to meet those standards? We’ll engage as a group and in hevruta (partner) study. Sessions will begin with framing comments by Dale Rosenberg, followed by a brief introductory video. Then we’ll divide into hevruta pairs to read the texts and discuss Rabbi Strausberg’s questions about them. At the end we’ll reconvene as a group to share our insights. To register, call the office or email Dale Rosenberg. And remember – the whole Project Zug catalog is available to BI members at no cost, thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts.
