The second Lebanese War and its aftermath will be at the forefront of an annual three-day World Zionist Organization rabbinical conference that starts Tuesday. During the World Conference for Rabbis and Orthodox Community Leaders, which will begin in Jerusalem and move up North, leading rabbis from the Diaspora and from Israel will discuss the ramifications of the war with Hizbullah. Some of the scheduled discussions include Ethical Warfare in Light of Halacha, Jewish Solidarity in Times of Crisis, and Redeeming Captives of War. In a discussion on Halachic Questions Raised During the War, rabbis will reflect on indirect monetary damages resulting from the state of war such as the canceling of wedding ceremonies or absence from work.
