Reading Beyond the Rules: Nurturing the Moral Imagination

How can we teach ethical thinking? In this talk, Dr. Joshua Guttoff presents a new approach to Talmud study that seeks to not just teach a student about the text, but encourages students to engage creatively with it so that its lessons are internalized. Dr. Guttoff argues that when we encourage students to use their imagination, students not only learn about morality and ethics, they become moral people and ethical thinkers.

Rabbi Joshua Gutoff is a teacher and writer living in Brooklyn, NY.
