As part of our continuing examination of Jewish Ethics, in this series we will focus on ethical dilemmas in our relationships, both personal and social. Topics include sexuality and romance; marriage and divorce; loving our neighbour; as well as loving the stranger and the status of the refugee. We will draw on a wide span of sources from Jewish and general philosophy and contemporary thought. As always, ethical problems should create lots of room for dialogue and a shared discourse. I look forward to exploring these dilemmas with you and hearing your insights in a free ranging class discussion.
