Five Fascinating Aspects of Jewish Law


January 30, 2023


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, January 30 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. Food will be provided. 

RSVP to attend. Contact McKenzie Johnson at mjohnson@tisrael.org with questions.
