Horse Racing in Jewish Law Wednesday, 5 November at 8:00pm, 46 Balaclava Road
On your marks, get set...GO! It's Spring Racing Carnival time in Melbourne and horse racing raises all sorts of fascinating questions in Jewish Law. Should horse racing be stopped because it is cruel to the horses? Is it ok to have a bet at the races? Is it reasonable for a nation to stop for a horse race? If I wear a head covering for religious reasons, can I stick a feather in it and use it as a hat for the races? Join us this week as we look at the Torah perspective on horse racing and professional sports.
