Ethics of driving course to give teens Jewish perspective

“You’re Driving Me Nuts,” a program on the ethics of driving for teens, will take place Sunday, Nov. 1 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Congregation Or Chadash.

“Every year we see too many accidents and other issues related to teens and driving, some stemming from lack of knowledge, others from lack of common sense thinking,” says Sharon Glassberg, director of the Coalition for Jewish Education of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona.

Presenters at the workshop will include Rabbi Thomas Louchheim, a Tucson City Court judge and a Tucson Police Department officer.

Along with CJE, cosponsors are Or Chadash and Tucson Hebrew High.

“You’re Driving Me Nuts” is open to all 15- and 16-year-olds accompanied by at least one parent, grandparent or guardian. The fee is $5 per family and reservations are required. To register, visit jfsa.org or contact Suzanne Amador at 577-9393, ext. 121, or samador@jfsa.org.
