#️⃣ 5 Sessions 🗺️ JHB and 🎦 Zoom 🕐 Monday, 7.45 pm 🧑‍🏫 Rav Ramon Widmonte and Ilana Stein


Description

Jewish law, thought and ethics of war - from Sodom and Amalek to Hamas to the ICJ “You shall erase the memory of Amalek from under the heavens; do not forget!” Devarim 25:19 As we find ourselves in a time of war, we turn to the Torah to understand and to be our guide. What does the Torah think about war? Does it encourage it or is it a necessary evil? Does the Torah countenance or perhaps require what Israel currently stands accused of: genocide? Are references to Amalek genocidal? From the first war recounted in the Torah through the laws given in Devarim (Deuteronomy), to the Talmud and classical thinkers and commentators, the Torah portrays a breathtakingly nuanced view. Join the Academy for a deep dive into a clash of civilisations: the Torah’s ethics of war and its creation of a universal attitude towards life and the use of force - impacting and changing Western thought forever.
