Beit Midrash: Power, Morality, and Proportionality
Donniel Hartman engages in a moral discourse about Jewish power and the ethical dilemmas of sovereignty, from classical Jewish sources to the IDF Code of Ethics. When does the use of power become immoral? When does the critique of power become immoral? How can we understand and lead dialogue about the recent conflict in Israel from the perspective of Jewish values?
