In this six-session series, we'll explore some of the major passages in the 8th chapter of Bava Kama, HaHovel ("One who Injures"). This chapter deals with how we assess and assign damages in cases of interpersonal injury. Through these conversations, the Talmud explores critical questions of agency and responsibility: Are we the owners of our bodies? What does it mean for others to have the ability to damage our bodies? How do we pay back someone for the loss of a part of their body? Are there wrongs that can't be repaid?
This class will not be havruta-based. We will go through and discuss the texts together; both the original text and a translation will be provided.
The content for the six-sessions will be cumulative, therefore, registration for all parts of the series is highly encouraged.
