Moses Meets Madison: Comparing Jewish and American Law

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

American Jews have a foot in two different legal systems. How do Jewish and American law treat specific issues that confront us today – capital punishment, abortion, and more? What are Jewish and American perspectives on the role of law in our lives, overall? What do the similarities and differences between the two legal systems reveal about the cultures that produced them? Most importantly, what do these two bodies of law say about us – what we believe, what we will fight for, who we are? Join veteran lawyer and Jewish Studies teacher Harman Grossman for a text-based exploration of two rich legal traditions, and ultimately, of ourselves.
