The Challenge of Jewish Sovereignty: Ethical Dilemmas 40 Years After the Yom Kippur War

Kol Shalom

Dates: Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Rabbi Reuven Hammer

In a sovereign Jewish State, what is the authority of traditional Jewish Law? What rights do non-Jews have in such a state according to Jewish tradition? How do we deal with women's rights regarding marriage and divorce? What is to be done when there is a conflict between Judaism and democracy? How does Judaism deal with the issue of war and peace regarding sovereignty over the Land of Israel? 


This program is made possible by Gary and Bernice Lebbin in honor of their family.
