Between Policy and Integrity (Summer Yom Iyyun 2018)
We will explore a Talmudic passage that seems to endorse rabbinic dissembling and prevarication in order to achieve desired policy outcomes. As fascinating as the Talmudic passage is, so are the medieval responses to it. We will consider how the different models offered can help us reflect on leadership and responsibility more broadly. Featured at the 2018 Summer Yom Iyyun.
