I received the following notice by e-mail from Neil at Modern Uberdox. It summarizes a shiur given by Rabbi Paysach Krohn, which was given in Chicago and can be DOWNLOADED HERE.
On Monday , February 18th, Rabbi Paysach Krohn Shlita delivered a powerful & moving lecture on how a Jew must act in the workplace as he or she deals with the non Jewish world. Rabbi Krohn with his wit & humor described how important it is for every Jew to act with Emes (truth). In conveying this message, he combined Divrei Chazal together with several anecdotes to illustrate just how a Jew must conduct himself. He mentioned how each Jew not only represents himself or herself but is a reflection on all of Klal Yisrael. He indicated that to properly prepare oneself for the world at large, one must be part of the Tzibbur and that comes through davening with a Minyan. He also expressed the importance of Limud Hatorah & the fact that one should start his day with Torah to cleanse his mind in order to properly prepare himself for the workplace. He also indicated that it was very important to have the proper Rav, a Rav who is not afraid of his constituents, but rather will instruct his congregants on the Torah approach to deal with today’s enormous challenges.
