Parshat Shoftim – Shame and Society

by Dr. Michelle Friedman, MD (Posted on September 5, 2019)

While we have a pretty clear understanding of how the justice system should treat criminals, many are at a loss as to how communities should treat them? Is public shaming ever justified, and is shame something that we consider a valued aspect of society? Dr. Friedman and Hody Nemes discuss these questions and more in this week’s episode of Pastoral Parsha.
