Alumni Events
Limmud with Rabbi Judah Kerbel
Tuesday, March 9th
8:00 – 8:30 PM EST on ZoomJoin Rabbi Judah Kerbel as we explore risk-taking and how to halachically make decisions. On the one hand, we’re taught to live our lives with caution; but on the other hand, to what extent should we be risk-averse, especially when we see others partaking in activities that are deemed “risky.” This topic certainly hits home now as we face the daily do’s and don’ts during times of COVID. However, with every decision-making moment in our lives, we could ask ourselves: Is this a normal, reasonable risk’ or have we taking this too far?”Register Here!
*Limmud is the second Tuesday of every month.
