The Intown Jewish Academy will present “Living with Integrity: Navigating Everyday Ethical Dilemmas,” the academy’s new six-session Winter 2013 course that begins during the last week of January.
Rabbi Ari Sollish, director of the academy, will conduct the six-course sessions at two convenient opportunities—Tuesday evenings at 8 starting Jan. 29, and Thursdays at noon starting Jan. 31. Both course offerings are held at the Jewish school in midtown Atlanta.
“There’s a lot of talk about ethics for government and big corporations, but almost every day we confront complex ethical decisions in our own relationships,” said Sollish. “From Nanny cams to our responsibilities to our parents, Living with Integrity will provide a framework for making balanced decisions for ourselves and for the people we care about.”
Packed with real-life scenarios, Living with Integrity challenges students to articulate their own opinions, while providing practical Talmudic wisdom to help them navigate through life’s inevitable ethical challenges. This course will not only provide the tools to make appropriate decisions, it will also enhance their interaction with family and friends.”
Like all Intown Jewish Academy programs, “Living with Integrity” is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All academy courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple or other house of worship.
The Intown Jewish Academy has teamed with the State Bar of Georgia, and Living with Integrity has been approved to offer Continuing Legal Education credits. Lawyers who take the six-session course will earn 9 CLE credits, plus 7.5 ethics credits. The course has also been approved for CLE credits in 30 other states.

Additionally, all attendees can earn Continuing Education Units for participating in the course. For information, call 404-898-0434 or visit www.intownjewishacademy.org .
