L607 Winter 2019 Talmudic Ethics
Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, Jan. 29–Feb. 5
Two sessions
Instructor: Rabbi Leibel Fajnland

Have you ever been curious about the Talmud, the crowning achievement of Jewish intellectual tradition, but thought it was too complex and inaccessible to anyone lacking extensive training? Not anymore. For this course, you need no prior knowledge of the Talmud and no formal legal training. You will observe how the Talmud tackles such issues as abortion, euthanasia, freedom of expression, and fair business practice. You will learn how the best Jewish minds struggled with hard choices for thousands of years, and you will trace their search for satisfying resolutions. You will discover how the Talmud offers its adherents a moral compass to help find direction through the labyrinth of life.
Rabbi Leibel Fajnland, the director of the Chabad of Reston and Herndon, is a prolific speaker on the topics of Torah, Talmud, Jewish identity and Israel.
