Feedback form is now closed.

In this class we will consider this question both in the context of our relationships and of social issues such as freedom of speech, hate speech, and verbal harassment. We will deepen our understanding of the complexity of the ethics of speech through conversation, philosophical frameworks, and study of Jewish texts on the topic of Ona'at Devarim (Verbal Oppression) and Lashon HaRa (Malicious Language).
