Conflicts Between Ethics and Halakha - A Case Study

Rabbi Benjamin Greenberg of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah (YCT) will conduct the session. His topic will be: "Conflicts Between Ethics and Halakha: A Case Study "

What do we do when our ethical sense comes into conflict with what halakha requires? Is it possible to reconcile the two or must one give way for the other? In our time together we will explore this question through the lens of the institution of slavery. Through a close examination of how the tradition wrestled with the ethical implications of slavery we will discover insights and tools for how we can approach this topic in our own religious lives.

We are very excited that Rav Greenberg will be our standing YCT scholar for the monthly sessions here forward. Rav Greenberg is a celebrated adult educator. Read more about him here:
