Full course description
One-time, online, 60 minute session
Should I violate your dignity if you violate mine? What is our responsibility when things go wrong? How can ancient Jewish tradition help us clarify what is wrong with sexual harassment? And once rumors get started, how do we as Hillel professionals respond? How do we balance the rights of all parties to human dignity and confidentiality? In this interactive learning session we will leverage compelling Jewish texts to bring Jewish wisdom to bear on these important questions and more.
