Session 3: Going Above and Beyond the Letter of the Law: At What Cost? Part Two

During the pandemic and the election season, the gap between what is legally enforceable and what is a matter of personal discretion has taken center stage. Beyond the Limits of Law: Repairing the Fabric of Society explores rabbinic concepts that can help us think about how we shape a society characterized by virtuous norms and not simply by legal rules and structure.
