In-Person CLE Event: You Shall Not Wrong or Oppress a Stranger – Jewish Law & the Treatment of Minorities
Events Dror Futter December 20, 2022 6:00 pm
Join Rimon Partner Dror Futter as he moderates the December 20th in-person seminar “You Shall Not Wrong or Oppress a Stranger – Jewish Law & the Treatment of Minorities.” This program is presented by the Bergen County Bar Association and will be held at the Chabad of Hackensack (280 Summit Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey). CLE credits are available.
Over the years, federal and state laws have evolved to protect the rights of minorities in the workplace and otherwise. Much ink has been spilled, and many dollars have been spent on the legislation and litigation of such laws. In this dialogue, we will delve into the history of such laws and compare and contrast the US legal approach to the one of Judaism.
Through reviewing biblical verses, Talmudic rulings, and medieval-times Rabbinic responsa, we will discover how Judaism answers this always-timely question: how do we protect the most vulnerable of society?
Dinner will be served.
This in-person seminar is approved for 1.0 NJ CLE Diversity/Inclusion/Elimination of Bias credits.
