Congregation Torat El


The Ethical Life: Jewish Values in an Age of Choice; A course in Jewish Ethics from the Jewish Theological Seminary

From political and 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. Now more than ever, we require a solid understanding of how Jewish ethics can inform our discussions and decisions about the critical questions of the day. Judaism has a long history of wrestling with moral questions, responding to them in a way that considers all sides of an issue. 

Come and join Rabbi Schonbrun as we wrestle with today’s most pressing ethical dilemmas. The class format will include videos from JTS faculty and other expert scholars. We will explore classical and contemporary texts as they relate to a wide range of ethical issues of the day. Topics include, but are not limited to: food production, fracking, mass incarceration, advanced directives and end of life care, disabilities, surrogacy, lying, and more.

No past experience necessary. Come and join us with your questions and be sure to bring a friend!

$20 per person/couple for study guide. In order for us to have enough study guides, please register with payment by October 9.

**This course will take place in two parts. Please feel free to join us for either or both sessions. Wednesdays, October 18, 25, November 1, 8, 15 and January 17, 24, 31, February  21 at 7:30pm.
