SUNDAYS: Kehilat Hakerem - Social and Ecological Justice in Deuteronomy

All classes are on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. Pittsburgh Time (20:00 Israel time)

The Book of Deuteronomy (Sefer Devarim) includes many laws that refer not only to social relationships but also to man’s relationship with nature. In this course we will discuss the relevance of the laws in Deuteronomy to our lives today and their connection with ideas of social and ecological justice.
