February 8, 2017

The Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies and the Georgetown University Law Center are pleased to present a special one day academic program to address some of the compelling issues confronting society today concerning economic justice, with a special focus on the relationship between American law, and the world’s great religious traditions. Six panel discussions will be led by leading scholars, professors and bankruptcy judges. 

David Kuney is moderating a panel on "The Moral Economy: Theories of debt forgiveness and debt restructuring: The ramifications and treatment of debt and debt forgiveness." He will moderate a discussion among Judge Wedoff, Judge Shelley Chapman (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) and Rabbi William Friedman (Harvard). Other panels include:

  • Judge Eugene Wedoff will deliver the keynote talk on Reflections on the moral economy as seen from the Bankruptcy Bench
  • Privacy and intellectual property: religious and secular views on privacy and ownership of intangible property
  • Marriage and family law: a comparative analysis
  • Experience "havruta": a special and optional learning session with Rabba Yaffa Epstein on reading canonical texts and applying rules of interpretation
