CCAR ETHICS CODE: Recent Changes to Be Aware Of
As rabbis, we are expected to abide by the highest moral values of our Jewish
tradition: personal conscience and professional integrity, honorable social
relationships, and the virtues of family life. Therefore, the CCAR established
the Code of Ethics in 1991 to which all members are obligated. As a
committee we have amended it many times, including 10 of the last 12 years.
The CCAR Ethics Code is a dynamic document, which has continued to
evolve to meet the needs of the changing rabbinate and a changing world.
This webinar will focus on the most recent amendments, and include a Q&A
with attendees.
Rabbi Rosalind Gold will moderate the conversation, and
Rabbi Martin Weiner will be a special presenter.
