In light of Edward Snowden’s recent admissions, do concerns about national security supersede our Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures? What can the Talmud teach U.S. constitutional lawyers about the value of privacy? Join acclaimed lecturers of Jewish ethics Rabbi Mordechai Becher and Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe and National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen—author of The Unwanted Gaze: The Destruction of Privacy in America—as they examine the boundaries between public safety and personal privacy by comparing Judaic law and U.S. constitutional law. Jerome M. Marcus, Esq. of Marcus & Auerbach LLC moderates this discussion.

This program is held in partnership with the Institute for Jewish Ethics.
