Hilchot ‘24’

The alternative title to this post would be “Does Rabbi J.D. Bleich Watch ‘24’, Too?”

He has an article in the most recent Tradition entitled “Survey of Recent Halachic Literature: Torture and the Ticking Bomb”. Rarely does a ‘ticking bomb’ situation occur in real life, which leads me to conclude that it has become an issue because of the acclaimed TV show which often features torture to find as much as possible about a ticking bomb.

There’s also an article that appeared recently in the New Yorker about the politics of ‘24’. Good read. (Hat Tip: CyberDov)
