This series will take place on Wednesdays at 11:00am Eastern, 6:00pm in Israel, August 31 - September 21

We will study the laws pertaining to the treatment of strangers, widows and orphans in Parashat Mishpatim (Exodus 22 and 23) and in other relevant biblical texts through the eyes of the traditional commentators.

When appropriate, parallels with, and differences from, other ancient law codes (like Hammurabi and Eshnunna) will be discussed.
