Instructor: Rabbi Ari Sollish
Do you enjoy puzzles and problem-solving? Do you love the give-and-take of thoughtful discussion? Then this course is for you! Our innovative course You Be The Judge presents real cases brought before the beit din, the court system of Jewish Law. We provide the cases and the primary source texts from the Talmud, and you grapple with the facts in order to arrive at satisfying solutions. You will have the opportunity to question, discuss, and argue, based on principle and precedent. You need no prior knowledge of the Talmud and no formal legal training. There are no prerequisites other than an open mind. You take the lead. You Be the Judge!
