Executive Learning: Shemini, A Murder on Purim?!
In one of the most bizarre Talmudic stories (Megilah 7b), two of the greatest Talmudic sages feast on Purim together. They are inebriated and one of them slaughters his friend. The next day he brings him back to life. The following year he invites his colleague for another Purim meal. This fascinating class, based on an address of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, re-invents the meaning of the story, and applies it to our daily struggle to link heaven and earth.

Executive Learning: Tazria, Why do we love to gossip?
Great people talk about ideas; ordinary people talk about things; small people talk about other people. When you are in touch with your humaneness, your words carry a ring of majesty and dignity to them. Your words are candid, real, deep, pure, coming from the humanness within your being. Not accidentally does the Targum (the authoritative Aramaic translation of the Bible) translate the phrase "a living creature", descriptive of the first man, as "a speaking spirit" (ruach memallelah [2]). To be human is to emulate the Divine who created the universe through words. We too have the power to create worlds, embrace souls and heal hearts through words. Each word we use can be a conduit for love and for blessings.

Executive Learning: Metzorah Moshiach the Leper
The seventh chapter of Kings II (read as the Haftorah of Tazria-Metzora), tells a fascinating story. It is the narrative about the “four lepers.” The story takes place during the First Temple era, when the Syrian Army swept down on the Northern Kingdom of Israel and laid siege to the city of Samaria (Shomron). Siege was the ultimate strategy in ancient warfare, comparable to a present day naval blockade. If an invading force could not penetrate the city walls, then the enemy would encamp around the walls of the city, cutting off all supplies, especially food and water, and simply wait until the inhabitants were starved and forced to surrender. The city of Samaria found itself in just such a predicament: under siege by the Syrian army, which had surrounded the city, and was now waiting for the Jewish Samaritans to surrender. The narrative teaches three fundamental lessons, about how to respond to a situation when you feel stuck between a rock and a hard ball; about how to confront the fear of how other people will respond to your actions; and how it is the leper within us and the lepers around us who can bring us redemption.
