Ethics beyond Halachah


"If, however, we recognize that Halakhah is multiplanar and many dimensional; that, properly conceived, it includes much more than is explicitly required or permitted by specific rules, we shall realize that the ethical moment we are seeking is itself an aspect of Halakhah."

(R’ Aharon Lichtenstein, Does Judaism Recognize an Ethic Independent of Halakhah?)

Have a great day,
