Spring Course: Beyond Right-The values that shape Judaism civil code - Beginning May 17th

Explore the values that shape Judaism's civil code. This course combines the study of Jewish values with the exploration of practical and relevant halachic questions. In the six lessons of this course we discuss fundamental Jewish values such as lifnim mishurat hadinarvus, and teshuvah—and demonstrate how these values guide and shape Jewish civil law. The goal of this course is to teach students the true meaning of Jewish values and what makes Jewish civil law uniquely Jewish.
