Lecture with Rav Yehuda Gilad, Rosh Yeshiva at Ma’aleh Gilboa, former Knesset member
The Ten Commandments: The Nexus Between Religion and Ethics: In this class, we will discuss the structure of The Ten Commandments (the Decalogue), and focus specifically on the command “You shall not covet”.
We will use the question” is reasonable to expect us to control our emotions?” as a stepping stool to discuss the link between ethics and religious law.
Since 1983, Rav Yehuda Gilad has served as rabbi of Kibbutz Lavi. In 1993, he founded Yeshivat Ma’ale Gilboa, where he continues to be Rosh Yeshiva. Committed to the idea that yeshiva students should not take advantage of Torah study to avoid civic duties, students serve a full, three-year military service as part of their five-year program. Rav Gilad also is a leading figure in Israel’s modern orthodox Rabbinic bodies serving on the advisory council of Rabbanei Tzohar and the steering committee of Beit Hillel. Rav Gilad is a national spokesman for the morally sensitive in the religious community and has earned recognition for his outspoken views and grassroots activism in promoting a Jewish and a democratic state —one without contradiction and without coercion from the religious establishment. In June 2002, Rav Gilad became a Member of the Israeli Knesset where he served on the Education and Labor and Welfare Committees.
