This session is intended for rabbinical students.
As a community which sometimes seems to have a place in public life that is disproportionately large as compared to its numbers, Jews often have a feeling that others are looking at them. This sense of the place of the Jew in the non-Jewish mind sometimes leads to a fear of airing our dirty laundry in front of outsiders. However, there are moments when non-Jewish authorities need to be brought in. This class will explore rabbinic perspectives on the idea of mesirah, or giving information over to non-Jewish authorities, and consider when including outsiders is necessary for the health of our communities.
