  • Business Ethics

    Volume 21

    Moses L. Pava

    Jewish Library of Law and Ethics Volume 21
    Praise for Business Ethics: A Jewish Perspectives
    In the twenty-first volume of the Yeshiva University/ KTAV Library of Jewish Law and Ethics, a Yeshiva University professor explains the relevance and applicability of Judaism's religious law and moral vision to the realities of the businessperson's practical life. Pava divides the book into three parts. Part 1 discusses why people often fail at business ethics and how they might succeed. Part 2 discusses the goals, substance, and method of Jewish business ethics. Part 3 examines corporate social responsibility and the use of inside information. Pava interprets classical Jewish writings in light of our contemporary business world. In a society where ethics seems to be a concept of the past, businessmen and businesswomen, Jews and non-Jews alike, could benefit from Pava's keen insights and practical approach.

  • Jews on Trial

    Robert Garber

    Anti-Semitism has been uncovered in an array of legal settings. In Jews on Trial readers will find variety and breadth in significant examples of prejudice, sometimes concealed, sometimes palpable, in official proceedings. Presented in clear and accessible essays are the fascinating stories -- from the French army captain whose ordeal stirred Theodor Herzl in his advocacy of Zionism to the U.S. Navy employee who passed classified information to Israel, from the Atlanta businessman accused of an unspeakable crime to the Holocaust historian who was sued by the fraudulent historian she unmasked. Here are innocents accused of brutal ritual murder and here are a husband and wife sentenced to death by a Jewish judge. Some well known stories are considered anew; readers may discover others for the first time. Each one is a revealing and provocative case history. All are true and fascinating, presented with balance and clarity by lawyers and scholars.
