CT lawyers can earn CLE credit while exploring the Talmud

Connecticut lawyers have the opportunity to fulfill the new state requirement that they complete 12 hours of continuing legal education with a course that explores the Talmud. “The 

Dilemma: Modern Conundrums. Talmudic Debates. Your Solutions,” a new six-session course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI), will begin Monday, Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m. at Chabad House of Greater Hartford. It is accredited

 for CLE credits for attorneys.

“In ‘The Dilemma,’ we encounter fascinating,
 real-life conundrums; situations in which your gut instinctively responds one 

way, but your brain tells you quite 

the opposite,” explains Rabbi Shaya Gopin, a spiritual leader and educator at Chabad. 

“To solve these dilemmas, participants are asked to break into study groups and

 explore hair-splitting Talmudic arguments that they will then debate and apply 

to solve the cases using new, interactive polling technology.”

This course is designed for people at all levels of Jewish learning, and is also open to those outside the legal profession.

Chabad House is located at 2352

 Albany Ave. in West Hartford for six Mondays beginning on January 30th 

at 7:30 p.m.

The fee for the series is $99. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
