The People vs. The Maccabees: A Trial and Panel Discussion

CLE credit: 
2 hours
Weight: 
0

Cleveland-Marshall will host "The People vs. The Maccabees," a dramatic mock trial and panel discussion, presented by Kol HaLev, Cleveland's Reconstructionist Jewish Community. Distinguished members of Cleveland's legal community will argue and preside over a theatrical mock trial and interfaith panel discussion. The event features a cast of legal, religious and academic experts with the audience serving as the jury.

"The People vs. The Maccabees," will look at the actions of Judas Maccabeus in the Second Century B.C.E. through the lens of our contemporary times. DId the Maccabees go too far in seeking their interpretation of religious freedom? Are they guilty of some of the same crimes we ascribe to groups today who are advocates of a rigid interpretation of a religion that leads to the justification of horrendous acts of violence?

Tickets for the event are $30-$125 for adults and $15 for students, and can be purchased at http://www.kolhalev.net/trial.html.
