“The Ethics of Torture and Just War”

From political to financial scandals to rapid progress in biomedical science and technology, the complex issues of modern society are, at their core, issues of ethical and moral concern.  Noiw more than ever, we require a solid understanding of how Jewish ethics can inform our discussions ad decisions about the critical questions of the day.  Judaism has a long history of wrestling with moral questions, and responding to them in a way that considers all sides of an issue.

In this class, we will watch short video lectures from faculty members of The Jewish Theological Seminary, and short videos featuring individuals from the American Jewish communuty who are grappling with these challenges on a daily basis, as well as study the texts that will inform our discussions.

This class is led by Rabbi Jay M. Kornsgold
