Free Speech, Incitement & Halacha: Incitement
Class description

The Torah prohibits inciting or encouraging someone to sin. Chazal inferred the details of this prohibition from the story of the snake that encouraged Chava to violate Gd’s commandment in the Garden of Eden.

In this series, we will survey the opinions of the leading authorities defining permitted and prohibited speech.

Sources are available through the links in both WORD format and pdf. In class we will translate and explain these sources.
