Modern Ethical Dilemmas from a Jewish Perspective with Rabbi Daniel Schaefer

Three Thursdays at 7 pm: December  6, 13 and 20

Since the Garden of Eden, Judaism has been concerned with ethics and has sought to provide principles for how to live in harmony with the earth, one’s
neighbors, and one’s self. As new eras raised new questions and challenges, the Prophets, Rabbis, and Jewish leaders sought to respond with answers rooted in Jewish tradition. This December we’ll discuss three modern ethical dilemmas, related to privacy, speech, and how to prioritize aid, and look to Jewish sources for help in finding answers.

Rabbi Daniel Schaefer is the interim Assistant Rabbi of Temple Ohabei Shalom. He grew up in Connecticut before attending Stanford University, where he studied History and Jewish Studies. Rabbi Schaefer’s award-winning honors thesis, American Judaism Reconsidered: Religion & Nationalism in the Thought of Irving Reichert, explored visions of American Judaism before World War II. At Hebrew College, his final project, The Way of the Wilderness, focused on connections between nature and Torah in the book of Numbers. Rabbi Schaefer was ordained by the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in 2018.
