With Israel now at war, it’s worth looking at traditional Jewish laws at war, both in the Torah and as they were modified by generations of ambivalent rabbis. Warning: neither doves nor hawks will be satisfied with what we will learn together, as there are many layers and voices within our tradition. But precisely in those tensions and ambivalences, I think we’ll find some profound moral and practical questions to explore.

This class is part of a  Scholar in Residence weekend at Congregation Beth Am.
