The Dilemma

  • Course Overview

    Apply mind-bending, brain-twisting, hair-splitting Talmudic reasoning to solve real-life modern dilemmas-situations that actually happened yet seem impossible to solve.

    Lesson 1: No Good Deed Unpunished - February 6

    What happens when someone sets out to commit a crime, but due to circumstances beyond his control, the criminal action produces positive results? Should the perpetrator be punished for the negative intention and action, or exonerated? Should he be rewarded for the inadvertent positive result?

    Lesson 2: Above The Law - February 13

    Sometimes people want to execute self-help justice without involving the authorities. If you know your cause is just, are you permitted to take the law into your own hand?

    Lesson 3: Windfall Wrangles - February 20

    Some people are lucky to come across valuable finds, only to have a property owner or gift giver contest ownership of the reasure. How do we determine ownership in these cases?

    Lesson 4: Making The Right Turn - February 27

    If a car is about to hit a pedestrian, must the driver turn the car toward a wall, even if this will kill the driver? If a car is about to hit a wall, can the driver turn the car to hit a pedestrian in order to save himself? What if it's a case of one life versus many lives?
