What do we mean by "Jewish ethics?" How are these ethics derived, and how do they help us navigate the perplexing controversies of today's world?
Join Rabbi Richard Fagan as he facilitates a timely and deeply provocative online course developed by the Jewish Theological Seminary. You will hear online lectures by world-class JTS faculty, receive carefully curated course materials, and participate in challenging discussions of issues of critical, contemporary importance. There are five sessions in this course:
• October 22—The Sources of Jewish Ethics (with Rabbi Gordon Tucker, PhD, Rabbi Elliot Dorff, PhD, Dr. Eitan Fishbane, and Dr. Michal Raucher)
• October 29—The Ethics of Food Production (with Dr. David Kraemer)
• November 5—Modern Day Slavery and Our Ethical Responsibility (with Rabbi Gordon Tucker, PhD)
• November 12—Fracking: A Case Study in the Ethics of Neighborly Relations (with Rabbi Eliezer Diamond)
• November 19—The Ethics of Torture and Just Wars (with Rabbi Michal Springer)
This is an extraordinary opportunity to confront some of the questions that are shaping our world, through the lens of Jewish values.
