Money Matters will present Judaism’s approach to practical economic dilemmas and monetary quandaries that we face daily in both our personal and professional lives.
The goal of this course is to provide a sensitive, fair, and unshakable economic paradigmgrounded in 3,000 years of tradition and practical experience—an ancient yet fresh spin on how we view ethics of money.
Students will emerge from this course with an understanding that only a divine economic system can ensure unequivocal justice while recognizing the virtue in each stakeholder’s position. Money Matters will show how the Torah’s sharply discerning yet holistic rulings inspire us with the confidence to confront any ethical economic dilemma.
