Rabbi Feldman teaches Torah at Chabad of Greenwich

Lesson 1: Self-Incrimination
The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects a person from being forced to testify against himself. In this class you will discover the Talmud’s fascinating approach to self-incriminating testimony.

Lesson 2: Defending Property with Deadly Force
The law in many countries upholds the “Castle Doctrine” - an individual’s right to defend his property with deadly force. Do you think the Torah supports the right to kill in order to protect your property? Would that be valuing possessions more than life? Discover the Talmud’s view on this important question.

Lesson 3: Purchasing Stolen Items
Who has the rights to stolen and then sold goods? The original owner from whom they were stolen? Or the unwitting buyer, who paid for them, never expecting that they were stolen or that he was doing anything wrong. The Talmud offers an approach that balances the interests of the original owner as well as the interests of the buyer.
