Exploring Modern Ethical Dilemmas Through the Eyes of Jewish Tradition

Course number : PL102   
« back to classes page
Life presents us with a litany of ethical dilemmas, some current, while others are ageless. Is it a sin to tell a lie? When should a person go through genetic testing? How much profit should a person in business make? How do we balance economic development with environmental concerns? What are our responsibilities to the hungry and homeless? In this course, open to those of all faiths, we will spend each session focusing on a different ethical dilemma, using biblical, Talmudic, medieval, and modern texts (in English). In doing so, we will explore what Jewish tradition says about these topics and add our thoughts to the beliefs of wise men through the ages.
