A Taste Of LimmudLA In Brentwood

A couple of hundred people showed up to a beautiful home and succah Saturday night to make havdalah, eat good food, drink hot tea, mingle, and learn some Torah.

I took in a class by Rabbi Elliot Dorff on “The Ethics of Language.” He outlined Judaism’s views on proper and improper speech. It’s easy to see why he’s inspired scores of people to enter the rabbinate.

I wish people would be more respectful of our teachers, instead of chatting all through class and interrupting a dozen times with questions and comments. Answer a couple of questions, pose a couple of questions, fine, but don’t dominate. Leave that to our teachers. Oy!
