Our Memberships

The Society of Jewish Ethics is an academic organization dedicated to the promotion of scholarly work in the field of Jewish ethics, including the relation of Jewish ethics to other traditions of ethics and to social, economic, political and cultural problems. The Society also aims to encourage and improve the teaching of Jewish ethics in colleges, universities and theological schools, to promote an understanding of Jewish ethics within the Jewish community and society as a whole, and to provide a community of discourse and debate for those engaged professionally in Jewish ethics.

Membership in the SJE is open to all with a scholarly or professional interest in Jewish ethics. Our members include college, university and seminary professors; independent scholars; graduate students in Jewish Studies, Ethics, and other disciplines; rabbis, chaplains and educators, and those training to enter such professions; professionals in other fields who are concerned with the relation of Jewish ethics to their fields; and others whose work in synagogues and Jewish institutions, government, social agencies or elsewhere is related to the purposes of the Society.
