Defending Death Row Inmates

By Stephen Greenwald

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2002

The author describes his deliberations and convictions in defending death row inmates. He argues that capital punishment as applied in the U.S. is unfair, racially biased and creates an impermissible risk of killing the innocent. In addition, he discusses how his study of Talmud has informed his premises, beliefs and work.
