Moot Beit Din challenges students at Jewish high schools to examine the ethical and moral dimensions of halakhah through creative engagement with contemporary situations.
Combining the best of debate with legal analysis, Moot Beit Din exposes students to the vitality of the Jewish legal system and its relevance to their own lives. Moot Beit Din creates a fun, exciting and social atmosphere centered on traditional Jewish learning.
For the seventh Moot Beit Din, RAVSAK has prepared a case on the topic of Tzaar baalei hayim and ethical eating.
Process and Competition:
After intensive study of halakhic sources, students will prepare written decisions. They then present and defend their decisions before judges during oral argument at a competition.
This year the competition will be hosted by Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy in Kansas City, Kansas from March 27-30, 2014.
Registration is closed for the 7th program.
If you have any questions or want to inquire about participating in next year's program, please contact Lisa Inberg, Student Programs Coordinator: email@example.com.
