At its core, negotiation is dialogue aimed at reaching an agreement or understanding. The word itself is rooted in terms denoting the act of dealing with others. As such, it is a place where business and personal ethics touch.
Negotiation is also a professional skill, with core principles and approaches. In this workshop, rabbi, attorney, and accomplished mediator David Perkel shares Jewish wisdom and best professional practices, helping participants improve their negotiation effectiveness, resolve differences, and expand their leadership abilities.
David Perkel is rabbi of Congregation Ezra Israel in West Rogers Park, where he teaches Jewish law and philosophy. He is also a practicing attorney and experienced mediator who acts as both an advocate and neutral in real estate, family, and commercial matters. He holds a JD from Northwestern University School of Law, rabbinic ordination from The Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (a Yehiva University Affiliate), and mediation certification from the Center for Conflict Resolution.
