Six Character Traits of a Leader
Dr. Samuel Lebens / February 2, 2016
Exploring a number of different texts, from the Bible, the Midrash, the Talmud, and the writings of Jewish philosophers throughout the ages, we will explore the character traits that - for better or worse - are associated with leaders and leadership. This textual journey will introduce us to surprising concepts, and provoke us to think about what it might mean to be a leader in our own communities, and also what it might mean to have leaders - Rabbis, teachers, employers and politicians - in your life.
