Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh BaZeh
Struggling with Jewish Colective Responsibility

Marc Katz

Identity & Responsibility, Text & Thought

We like to say "all of Israel is responsible for one another" but what does that really mean? In this course we will take a close look at the biblical and rabbinic roots of this concept and wrestle with the notion of Jewish collective responsibility? Just how tied are we to the greater Jewish world? What does it really mean to be a "guarantor" for our fellow human being?
