The Alan Papernick Educational Institute Endowment Fund presents:

Tense Topics in Jewish Law

We live in a time of multiple challenges. Controversial issues and struggles confront us daily. But the truth is that Jews have never desisted from addressing tough problems. In fact, we specialize in them. In this year’s CLE series, Rabbi Schiff will dive into a range of “tense topics” – difficult and troubling issues that are both powerfully emotional subjects and have substantive legal ramifications at the same time. Each topic raises significant concerns in our contemporary lives. And Jewish law has something to say on them all.

All Sessions are Thursdays, 8:30-10:45 AM:
October 15, 2020 – Who is a Jew in Jewish Law?
December 3, 2020 – Surrogacy in Jewish Law
February 18, 2021 – Suicide: Jewish Approaches to the Most Painful Loss
March 18, 2021 – Privacy in Jewish Law
