The First Annual Maurice Amado Foundation Lecture in Jewish Ethics: "The Ethics of Wealth and Work"
Work helps us to survive, acquire material comforts, and be secure and independent. We learn conflicting values from American culture and Jewish tradition about wealth and work. How do we reconcile them in our individual lives and in society? Dr. Jennifer Thompson, (Ph.D., Ethics and Society, Emory University), the new Maurice Amado Assistant Professor of Applied Jewish Ethics and Civic Engagement at CSUN, will help us explore these issues with the help of a variety of Jewish ethical texts.
Free public lecture. RSVP please (818) 677-4724 or email email@example.com

As concerns grow about their effects on living organisms and the environment, the symposium brings together experts to shed light on these tiny chemical messengers.
