Chabad offers ‘living’ course

Chabad Jewish Center will launch its winter course, Portraits in Leadership: Timeless Tales for Inspired Living in February. Portraits in Leadership is a study of the life story of six figures whose courage and determination helped Judaism weather its darkest hours. In the face of the 1st-century Roman assault on Jerusalem, the fundamental institutions of the Jewish people were destroyed. But these leaders managed to preserve the essence of Judaism.

“This course is one part history, one part biography — all parts uplifting inspiration,” said course instructor Rabbi Eli Goorevitch. “It is about decisions made 2,000 years ago that continue to shape the contours of contemporary Jewish life.

“Students are constantly looking for tools to deal with day-to-day challenges. 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.”

Portraits in Leadership 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. The course is open to the public, and attendees need not to be a member of any particular synagogue or temple.

This course is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Feb. 3, at the Chabad Jewish Center, 30804 S. Coast Hwy.
