Spotlight on Academy!
Both last week and this week \our 9th & 10th graders will be engaging in discussion about ethical issues with Lawrence Husick. Below is a glimpse into some dilemmas that they are discussing: Is it every OK to cheat? Is there such as thing as "too fat"? If you could take a pill that gave you higher SAT scores, should you take it? Is downloading music and video from the internet music and video from the internet a sin?
Making good ethical decisions requires sensitivity to ethical issues and a method for
exploring the ethical aspects of decision and weighing the considerations that should
impact our choice a course of action. The more novel and difficult the ethical choice we
face, the more we need to rely on discussion and dialogue with others about the dilemma. Only by careful exploration of the problem, aided by the insights and different perspectives
of others, can we make good ethical choices in such situations.
Making ethical decisions requires that we know what core values are most important. Our
Jewish tradition identifies eight values of ethical importance: Honesty, Integrity, Personal Responsibility, Respect for the Law, Brit, Loyalty, Tikkun Olam, and Chesed. What are these,
and how do they fit into the ways in which our society asks us to make good decisions?
