Mondays, February 6, March 20, April 3, and May 1, 2017

Strange as it may seem, this is a course without a topic. Instead, it provides an engaging new approach to Talmud study. Each lesson presents a case study with a seemingly impossible ethical conundrum, and explores original Talmudic texts for solutions. Participants will study texts in pairs, arriving at their own conclusions and utilize electronic polling to communicate their answers.

April 3: More Equal than Others: Moral Decisions in Designing Artificial Intelligence
May 1: Accomplice to the Inevitable: Responsibility for an Overdetermined Outcome

Rabbi Hesh Epstein has been the Executive Director of Chabad Lubavitch of South Carolina since 1987. His evening courses have become a regular and popular fixture of Jewish Studies community education offerings.
