Moot Beit Din

Moot Beit Din provides high-school students with a first-hand look at the inner workings of the Jewish legal system and helps them sharpen their critical thinking skills by applying the ancient wisdom of halakhah (Jewish law) to some of the most headline-making issues of today.  Teams of students are assigned a topic and work together to craft a written argument based on rabbinic sources. Moot Beit Din culminates in weekend long shabbaton where student teams from across the country gather to present their case to a panel of judges.
