Tzedek, Tzedek: Judaism’s Pursuit of Everyday Justice
Hosted By: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning
How is a Jewish ideal transmitted and transformed over the course of generations?
Judaism has many big ideas about justice, or tzedek, and the ideals that shape an ethical and just life. In this four-part course you will explore significant issues of the human experience, their development over the generations, and their everyday applications to modern life. The four topics covered include the right and responsibility of privacy, complicity and bad advice, verbal abuse and the boundaries of competition.
This unique Melton online course was developed in partnership with Sefaria, a living library of Jewish texts. In each lesson, learners will join their teacher in utilizing Sefaria to access the texts and trace the development of Jewish ideas from the Bible, through the Talmud and all the way to our very day.
Fasten your seatbelts as we journey together through the generation, from one idea to the another, from one text to the next.
