    Course Overview

    Beyond Right: The Values that Shape Judaism's Civil Code

    Talmudic analysis and mind-bending logic have long been a hallmark of Jewish scholarship. But buried beneath much of the discussion and legalese are core Jewish values that fuel so much of the debate. This course examines a number of key legal issues that disclose fundamental ethical considerations that serve as the engine of Jewish civil law.

    Lesson Outline


    Lesson 1
    Beyond Good Neighbors Most laws are designed to protect the rights of people and their property. But Judaism’s civil code is driven by a different goal. Explore how laws of damages and disputes support a uniquely Jewish view of the human mission.
     


    Lesson 2
    Beyond Restitution In seeking to restore the rights of plaintiffs, Jewish courts actively assist offenders in achieving full repentance too. Why? Discover the advantage of properly undoing damage over mere compensation.
     


    Lesson 3
    Beyond Taking Offense You may feel a moral urge to speak up against an offensive action. But might you have a legal responsibility to deter someone from certain behaviors? Judaism says: Yes. In this lesson, we discuss why and when.
     


    Lesson 4
    Beyond Personal Freedom With 613 commandments in the Torah and myriad rules expounded in the Talmud, can Judaism ever be called "liberating"? Let’s delve into the Exodus, the covenant, and the ways in which laws can lead to the purest human freedom.
     


    Lesson 5
    Beyond Lawful Ownership Is the claim of ownership anything more than a subjective social agreement? A foundation of Chassidic thought is that material possessions contain spiritual energy that is specific to their owners. Let’s consider the owner’s rights and responsibilities through this lens.
     


    Lesson 6
    Beyond Presumption of Innocence While a presumption of innocence can protect defendants from liability, it is not quite a declaration of uprightness. Jewish law goes so far as to presume every person’s core goodness. See how this view can lead us to a truly upright world .
