"Last week I saw a man who had not made a mistake in 4,000 years. He was a mummy in the British Museum." - H.L. Wayland

"There is nothing perfect in this world. Our job is not to hunt down perfection and live within it. It is to take whatever broken pieces we have found and sew them together as best we can."

In light of the above, I encourage you to post comments on how you believe Chabads JLI sessions can improve.

  1. I am really enjoying the classes. I like that there are opportunities to ask questions and receive knowledgeable answers.

    Being the therapist that I am I tend to think about client-centeredness. I suppose that in classes like the Tanya the purpose is to provide information that will help people to recognize the benefits of trying to improve their lives through religious observance. However, I wonder what people are actually thinking. Do they believe that religious observance can improve their lives or are they ambivalent. I suppose if they had no interest they would not be attending the class. I wonder if work sheet homework exercises might be helpful for processing the information in class and then bridging the gap between theory and reality. Asking us questions on a personal level.

    Eg.) 1. Do you imagine your life being more wholesome if you were more observant?______________________________________________________________________
    2.) What is preventing you from advancing to a higher level of observance?...

    It might be interesting if people felt it was permissible to do little statistical measures on the feed back from certain key questions.
