Military Ethics and Civilian Casualties: A Jewish Perspective

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

The UK book launch of “Ethics of Our Fighters: A Jewish View on War and Morality” by Rabbi Dr. Brody will explore the moral dilemmas of Israel’s wars against enemies who play by no rules. The class will examine what classic sources and contemporary thinkers say about these pressing ethical issues. Drawing from Rabbi Dr. Brody’s recent book, it presents a systematic Jewish worldview on contemporary military ethics.
