Five Fascinating Aspects of Jewish Law


December 5, 2022


07:00 PM - 08:30 PM EDT


Jewish law is thousands of years old, yet we continue to study and practice it every day, whether we know it or not. Some of the law in the United States derives from Jewish law. Laws such as inheritance, capital punishment, the tort system and many other legal issues are related to Jewish law, as found in the Bible and the Talmud.

Join us onsite at Temple Israel on Monday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. for an interactive discussion that will focus on the similarities and differences between Jewish law and the legal system in the United States. Current U.S. Supreme Court cases can also be discussed, in light of Jewish law.

This workshop is led by Mark Schonfeld, a prominent attorney in Boston who specializes in intellectual property litigation.  He is also a scholar of Jewish texts and a published writer on legal topics.  Mr. Schonfeld is a frequent speaker on continuing legal education and on Jewish subjects, and is Adjunct Professor of Law at Cornell Law School.

This is a free onsite event, open to all. RSVP to McKenzie Johnson at
