Was building the Tower of Babel a rebellion against God? Was it a power grab? God create people to inhabit the earth but did not anticipate such abuse of power. Join us to find out why the Tower was the last straw.

Join Loyola Law School Professor Laurie Levenson and UC Berkeley School of Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky as they argue the case in a thought-provoking and entertaining debate over the legal and ethical questions at stake. Rabbi Arnold Rachlis will lead a lively discussion with a panel of experts on the moral and philosophical issues raised by the case. As a jury member, you will decide the outcome.
