Life and Death—It’s in the Courts, the Legislatures and the Talmud: A Jewish View of the Death Penalty
Rabbi Lewis Kamrass
Rabbi Kamrass will guide us through the complexities of capital punishment, including the clear statements in the Bible, examples like the Rabbinic/Talmudic major shift away from capital punishment, the use of the death penalty in contemporary Israel and the case of the federal death penalty for the Tree of Life killer as we approach the fifth anniversary of that terrible event. Capital punishment is also a current issue in the Ohio legislature, so these sessions will help to clarify personal opinions as informed by the evolving Jewish teachings on this issue of life and death.
