The Jewish Ethicist

Led by Rabbi Mira Wasserman, PhD

Fridays, Feb 21, 28, March 6, 12:00–1:00pm Eastern 

$108 for three sessions

All sessions will be recorded and available to participants. You may join the session live or watch recordings at your own convenience.


Like the New York Times’ Ethicist column, in which an expert offers practical wisdom in response to readers’ quandaries, this series will respond to real-life ethical dilemmas. In keeping with a Reconstructionist approach, Rabbi Wasserman does not offer simple answers, but invites participants into a process of values-based decision making. Each session will feature one or two ethical dilemmas, either submitted by participants, or captured from the newspaper. We will examine relevant teachings from the Jewish ethical tradition, and discuss how values shape our decision-making. 

Rabbi Mira Wasserman, Ph.D., is the director of the Center for Jewish Ethics and assistant professor of rabbinic literature at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.
