Siege Warfare and Minimizing Collateral Damage: “Forewarning” and “Roof-Knocking” in Jerusalem and Lebanon: Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Brody

Sieges are one of the oldest and common forms of warfare, including many examples in Tanakh. They can also cause great suffering, as claimed now by some of Israel’s critics. What’s the controversy about? We’ll explore the important halakhic limitations applied to sieges and what Jews might have learned from our horrific experiences in ancient wars. Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Brody is executive director of Ematai, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people navigate their healthcare journey with Jewish wisdom. Rabbi Brody also recently published a book: Ethics of Our Fighters. A Jewish View on War and Morality.
