We are proud to announce the upcoming Robbins Collection Lecture in Jewish Law, Thought, and Identity, hosted with The Helen Diller Institute for Jewish Law & Israel Studies. This year’s lecture, “Jewish Law for the Digital Age,” will be held virtually on Wednesday, March 10 at 5:30pm PST (UTC-08:00). Featured speakers at the event include Professor Kenneth Bamberger, Professor of Law at Berkeley Law and co-Director of the Helen Diller Institute, and Professor Ariel Evan Mayse, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University and Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Program on Jewish Law, Thought, and Identity.
Does Jewish law speak to the most important issues of our day? Professors Bamberger and Mayse make the counterintuitive argument that Jewish law’s millennia-old approach to surveillance, communication, and information collection, sharing, and use, offers missing frameworks for the struggle to protect privacy in an age of big data.
