Modern Conundrums: Western Ethics and Jewish Law On The 21st Century’s Hardest Questions
Hosted By: ZIVUG
Together we will explore some of the juiciest ethical dilemmas facing 21st century Jews through the lenses of modern medical ethics, western moral philosophy, and halachah (Jewish law).
We’ll start by asking: what counts as a moral issue? Then, over several classes, we’ll delve into the ethics of self-driving cars; withdrawing, withholding, or requiring life-sustaining therapies; selecting embryos; and more. We’ll conclude our series by considering the role of intention in halachic and moral violations, and the role and function of halachic and moral rules in our lives.
Classes meet April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4, 11, 25, June 1. The cost per sessions is $15, or $120 for the series.
