Principles of Moral Thought and Action

Written by:

Orthodox Judaism does not recognize any autonomous, let alone humanistic, ethical system not rooted in the Torah, and derives its moral theory exclusively from the halakha, or rabbinical Jewish law. The ethical standards that determine membership in the Orthodox community are essentially defined by strict adherence to the practices of Talmudic law.
