Five Fascinating Aspects of Jewish Law

Jewish law is thousands of years old, yet we continue to study and practice it every day, whether we know it or not. Some of  the law in the United States derives from Jewish law. Laws such as inheritance, capital punishment, the tort system and many other legal developments are related to Jewish law, as found in the Bible and the Talmud. You can learn the similarities and differences between Jewish law and the legal system in the United States. Current U.S. Supreme Court cases will also be discussed, in light of Jewish law.
