Defining Our Universe of Moral Concern
Join us for a discussion with 
Joseph Gindi, 
Senior Program Officer, International Education and                                                                                                Jewish Engagement for the American Jewish World Service

Faced with a sea of problems across our globalized world, we each make choices about where to put our time and energy. Essentially, each carve out our own scope of moral concern. Is that good? Is that right? Join Joe Gindi from American Jewish World Service to explore the factors that shape our own universe of moral obligation. How and why do we prioritize certain people, communities, or issues over others? What do Jewish sources say about the ethics of this hierarchy of value, and how can they help us make the right decisions?
