Love Your Neighbor and Yourself: A Jewish Approach to Modern Personal Ethics

Love Your Neighbor and Yourself: A Jewish Approach to Modern Personal Ethics by Rabbi Elliot N. Dorff
English | 2003 | ISBN: 0827607598, 082760825X | 384 pages | PDF | 5 MB

A leading ethicist suggests ways to take the moral high road in one’s personal life.

In this topically relevant book on modern ethical issues, Dorff focuses on personal ethics, Judaism’s distinctive way of understanding human nature, our role in life, and what we should strive to be, both as individuals and as members of a community. Dorff addresses specific moral issues that affect our personal lives: privacy, particularly at work as it is affected by the Internet and other modern technologies; sex in and outside of marriage; family matters, such as adoption, surrogate motherhood, stepfamilies, divorce, parenting, and family violence; homosexuality; justice, mercy, and forgiveness; and charitable acts and social action.
