Moses Meets Madison: Comparing Jewish and American Law with Harman Grossman
Thursdays, March 2 through May 25, 2023, 6:00–7:15 pm
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 value of law, overall? What do the similarities and differences between the two legal systems reveal about the cultures they grow out of? Most importantly, what do these two bodies of law say about us – what we believe, what we 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.
