Please join Rabbi Jacobson for part four of this intriguing series: Addressing the Vice of Covetousness. Why do people covet? What is the root and anatomy of covetousness? Does a covet gene exist? Are there benefits to covetousness? How can we channel its power? What is the difference between desiring and coveting?

Discover a refreshing, surprising way to look at covetousness directly in its face. Learn new tools to help you redirect and harness coveting for a greater benefit.

Dear Rabbi Jacobson,
Being good-hearted is not considered a vice, but in excess it is a weakness.
It seems almost stupid to always put others’ point of view ahead of one’s own.
The result is getting short-changed in most situations.

Would it be possible to cover this theme in tonight’s session, as it seems to be the opposite of greed?
I would appreciate it.

Thank you.
