With the civilized world now grappling with underlying moral and legal issues relating to waging war, this workshop will address some of the topic’s most agonizing and gut-wrenching questions from the perspective of Jewish law, including: When is war justified? What are the dynamics of legitimate peace treaties? How are POWs to be treated? What about harm to innocent civilians (i.e. collateral damage)? What are the core ethical guidelines of war?
