🏆🏆🏆 For the 3rd year in a row, Kehillah has won Moot Beit Din! (Jewish moot court)
Big news! For the 3rd year in a row, Kehillah has won Moot Beit Din! (Jewish moot court) Kol HaKavod to Sawyer Anderson (‘20), Yuval Mazor (‘22), Noga Rafalin (‘23), and Dahlia Soussan (‘21). This year, 27 teams from 19 schools in Israel and North America participated.
In this year’s case study, a campus climate initiative is offered money by a donor who made his money through unethical means, specifically by profiting from a private prison company. The students had to decide if it was halachically permissible to take the money. The Kehillah team’s win came in the Cardozo Division, in which teams base their ruling on a 25-page book of Jewish texts from throughout history selected by the organizers.
