Judaism & Ethics
An Intensive Investigation

Ethan Tucker

We will explore anew the classic conflict between ethical commitments and religious duty: the Binding of Isaac. How do we deal with situations where the observance of a commandment gets in the way of our larger vision of human dignity? Can we affirm the power of universal ethics without vitiating our commitment to Judaism? Ethan Tucker asks some tough questions about Judaism and universal ethics.
