Gann Moot Beit Din Teams Win in Maryland!

From the friendships forged between all the participating students to the lively and sophisticated conversations about Jewish values and ethics, this experience will be one the students will take with them for a long time.
Gann participated in the Maimonides Moot Court Competition, a program that brings together students from all over the world for an inspirational Shabbaton experience and culminates in a competition where student teams present their rulings on a case involving a deep ethical dilemma. 

This year’s case asked students to determine whether it is ever appropriate to shame someone online for the sake of the greater good. For the past few months students in Gann’s Halachic Process Module studied Jewish sources and grappled with the inner workings of the Jewish legal tradition to produce a written ruling and oral presentation that was then debated in front of a panel of expert judges and other participating schools. From the friendships forged between all the participating students to the lively and sophisticated conversations about Jewish values and ethics, this experience will be one the students will take with them for a long time.  To top it all off, both Gann teams took first prize in their respective divisions!
