Financial markets have come to influence virtually every activity of our daily lives, whether we’re financial professionals pondering professional ethics; charitable donors debating just how much to give; future retirees looking into socially responsible investing; inheritors of wealth grappling with money’s complicated legacy; or workers trying to build power through contracts. This class asks all of us to bring our financial experiences to bear in looking closely at the much-neglected field of rabbinic financial law. Through our own stories, teacher Allen Lipson will guide us as we join the rabbinic conversation over the place money and its institutions do play and ought to play in our lives. In the process, we’ll become familiar with core topics in the field, including ribit (interest), ona’ah (fair pricing), yerushah (inheritance), ma’aser (tithing), and sekhirut (labor contracts).

No previous textual or religious background is required, beyond a willingness to bring your full self to the texts!
