For the majority of us, ethics and human relations are the most relevant parts of Jewish philosophy and law—the ones deserving utmost attention. But many of our greatest scholars have viewed ethics as inextricably linked to cosmology, theology, Kabbalah, psychology and Jewish law.
In this course, we will examine the role of ethics in Judaism through the lens of three highly influential thinkers whose work spans the 16th through 20th centuries: the Maharal of Prague, a towering theologian; Nachman of Breslov, a dynamic Chasidic master; and Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, perhaps the greatest philosopher of Halacha of the Modern Era. Together, we will learn how each thinker contextualized ethics within his own life and thought system.
