Description

Everyday Morality
Thursdays October 17, 24, 31 & November 7 | 10:00 – 11:30 AM


In this course, we’re going to be wrestling with every day moral dilemmas, the sorts of which we each encounter all of the time in our lives. We’ll consider questions like: "If and when is it okay to shame someone else for the sake of protecting another," and "Are there instances in which it is not only permissible to lie but in fact necessary?" We'll pose these every day moral dilemmas to classic Jewish sources and see what, if any wisdom, they have to offer us when confronted with these questions. In doing so, we'll attempt to not only answer the dilemmas before us but suggest a model for what it might look like to turn to Jewish texts for guidance on pressing questions of our times.

This class will be taught by Rabbi Avi Strausberg.
