Course Overview

Lesson 1 - Gun Control
The stories in the newspapers are heartbreaking and gut-wrenching. Another person came with firearms and starting shooting at people. In a movie theater, a classroom, the workplace—it was the same horrific scene.

What are we supposed to do about gun violence? Should we seek to change permissive gun laws? Should we alter restrictive gun laws? Should we let the evil of the few result in a restriction of freedom for the many? What teachings from the Torah are relevant to this topic?

Lesson 2 - Immigration
Today, we face some significant debates about immigration. There is a lot of discussion about what to do with those who are in the U.S. illegally. This debate is so sharp that people cannot even agree on the correct term for such people:“undocumented immigrants” or “illegal aliens.”

But a broader debate rages about the overall immigration issue. There are those who want the U.S. to become more lax with its immigration policy, allowing more people into this country at a quicker pace and with fewer restrictions. On the other hand, there are those who would like to see less immigration and want to be more cautious about who is allowed to enter and reside in this land. Can Jewish law contribute to the discussion?
