This chapter presents a paper given at the international conference titled “Beyond Violence: Religious Sources for Social Transformation.” The paper focuses on how Judaism can contribute toward ending violence and murder in the name of religion. It addresses questions such as: What tendencies does one find in the tradition? What methods can one adopt that can be used to teach and model peaceful policies? How can one develop checks on religiously sanctioned violence for which the tradition has been a source in the past?
