This session will examine different Jewish approaches to modern day ethical dilemmas. It will look at the true story of how calling out a sexist joke led to a viral tweet and then threats of violence. We will discuss how to strike the balance between calling out bad behaviour and ‘cancel culture’ on social media. We will also examine the ethical questions associated with programming self driving cars in the face of fatal collisions or accidents. Whose life should be spared?
