Business Ethics

Business Ethics

In this Jewish Business Ethics course Rabbi Leo Dee will cover a number of salient topics relevant to todays working lifestyle. Each session will start with a short film or challenging question that will be addressed in the session, accessing sources from the Mishna, Gemara, Rambam and later poskim (in Hebrew and English). Be prepared for some ethical dilemmas! (The inspiration for this course is from a close reading of “The Jewish Ethicist: Everyday Ethics For Business And Life” and its footnotes, Rabbi Dr Asher Meir, Ktav, 2004).

What happens when you don’t fix a fare with a taxi before the ride? What happens if the taxi breaks down on the way to your destination? What happens if it gets stuck in the ice in your driveway?

Business Ethics: Lesson
Class description

Frequently we agree with people on a deal but the precise details of what we’ve agreed were not written down or discussed. We assume that “breakfast” was included in our B&B package or that towels and shower gel should be for free – but sometimes the host does not. How do we resolve such issues, who is right and who is wrong? Learn the ancient wisdom of our Rabbis who solved these questions thousands of years ago. Look forward to learning with you!
