Bridging East and West: Judaism and the Role of Confession in Criminal Cases
Join us via Zoom on Tuesday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m. for “Bridging East and West: Judaism and the Role of Confession in Criminal Cases” with Dr. Isaac Amon, Attorney and Counselor at Law in St. Louis. We will examine the history of acquiring confessions in criminal cases, whether by physical or psychological techniques, and will learn the Western, Eastern, and Jewish approaches to this fascinating topic. Importantly, we will come to appreciate the remarkable foresight of the centuries-old and uniquely Jewish approach, which can assist the American criminal justice system in its continual quest to ensure “equal justice under law.”
