Where Ethics Meet History: Bystanders, Upstanders, and Civic Responsibility

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will be introduced to Facing History's resource "Sacred Texts, Modern Questions: Connecting Ethics and History through a Jewish Lens," which integrates biblical, rabbinic and contemporary sources into modern day questions. We will examine bystander and upstander behavior and discuss factors that lead to choices of action or inaction.
