Pick Your Battles: Rules of Warfare Engagement
Chaim Shmuel Stitzer, Captain, United States Air Force
Rabbi Mordechai Fleisher, Senior Educator, Denver Community Kollel
Fighting a war is difficult enough. It becomes exponentially more complicated when you have an entire set of rules to abide by during battle. Rules of engagement, as they are known, provide guidance for troops on the battlefield, creating a code of ethics for what is often a most unethical environment. Some of the more well-known issues, such as protecting civilians, seizure of enemy property, and human shields, often make headlines when violated.
The Torah discusses rules of warfare, as well. From security to sieges to spoils, the Torah provides a framework for going to battle. What can the Torah teach us about rules of engagement during a time of war? Join Chaim Shmuel Stitzer, Captain, United States Air Force, and Rabbi Mordechai Fleisher, Senior Educator for the Denver Community Kollel, as they engage the issues and fight for the truth that the Torah offers us in today’s day and age.
