Rabbi Danny Schiff

Thursdays at 9:30 AM, Mar. 23 - Apr. 27, 2023.

Today, many are concerned that democracy is under threat. That reality raises a critical question: what does Judaism have to say about democracy? What is the attitude of Judaism to majority rule, to defending minorities, to the separation of religion and state, to kings and courts? In this course, Rabbi Schiff will delve into what our texts have to say about the structure of government from a Jewish viewpoint.

Co-sponsored and offered in conjunction with Temple Sinai
