Where: East Midwood Jewish Center in Brooklyn, NY. When: Thursdays, February 9, 16, 23, 8:00pm Description: Unlike many historical documents, the Bible does not cover up mistakes or wrongdoing. This makes it extremely valuable for teaching moral character and leadership. As we know from our own lives, lessons learned from mistakes often provide a more lasting and powerful impact than those learned from doing things right. Also, it is difficult to learn a lesson from the lives of perfect people. The Bible demonstrates that even great people make mistakes. We will examine the mistakes made by some of our greatest leaders, among them Jacob, Judah, Joseph, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon, Mordecai, and Esther to see what we can learn from them.
