Is it morally acceptable to use surveillance and profiling to protect national security? Should war only be used in self-defense? Is torture in times of war morally acceptable? Contributors include scholar Noam Chomsky, Lt. Col. Seth Milstein, and political philosopher Michael Walzer. Each volume in this series presents hypothetical cases on specific topics, followed by traditional and contemporary sources. Supplementing these are brief essays, written by contributors of various ages, backgrounds, and viewpoints to provoke lively thought and discussion. These voices from Jewish tradition and today’s Jewish community present us with new questions and perspectives, encouraging us to consider our own moral choices in a new light.

Editorial Reviews

"In the face of rampant and continuing warfare around the globe, it is imperative that contemporary prophets be heeded -- since the ancient sources have so little to say about the complexities of our modern times. Be sure to check out the interviews with Noam Chomsky and Michael Walzer."—Spirituality and Practice
