Continuing Legal Education

The Alan Papernick Educational Institute Endowment Fund presents: Jewish Law Today

Like any legal system, Jewish law is dynamic.  It responds to new societal issues as they arise.  In “Jewish Law Today”, Rabbi Schiff will address five twenty first century legal debates from the perspective of Jewish legal sources.  Exploring relevant texts, Rabbi Schiff will present the unique insights of Judaism on each of these complex current topics.  How does Judaism inform these issues as we confront them in our own lives?  What wisdom does Judaism offer that might illuminate these important legal conversations?

September 13, 2019 – Meat Lovers vs. Vegans in Jewish Law
