Rabbi Moshe Bryski of Conejo Jewish Academy said he's looking forward to challenging students to connect ancient texts to modern problems. The course, which is being taught in the Conejo Valley by Judge Frank Johnson and attorney Steve Fenster, has inspired Bryski to consider developing more classes for litigators that link secular and religious law.
