 Course Overview 

Crime and Consequence tackles the important issues that today's society needs to address.

Criminal Justice Reform. What does Judaism say?

From the Boston marathon bomber to the petty thief there is lot in our current system that can benefit from the Torah's millennia-old, but refreshingly compelling, approach.

This C&C course is CLE accredited (in many states) and explores the Jewish approach to a wide range of related topics; from incarceration to the death penalty, from maintaining criminal records to crime prevention.

 BIG Questions 

 

What is the objective of punishment?

Is incarceration the ideal way to punish criminals?

Do all criminals deserve a second chance?

How do we effectively rehabilitate criminals?

Is it moral to take the life of a murderer?

Should criminal records be available to prospective employers?

How should we relate to friends or family members who have committed crimes?

When should we trust criminals again and allow them back into our lives?

Can the testimony of cooperating witnesses given as part of a deal with the prosecution for a reduced sentence be considered reliable?

What causes crime? And what are the best ways to reduce it?
