AJPA-Hartman Ethics Project

Working Papers

  1. The Big Picture
    Do Jewish values demand that Jewish journalists develop and follow a code of ethics?

  2. Tikkun Olam / Lashon Hora
    Does the value of tikkun olam “trump” other concerns from a Jewish perspective? If so, when?

    Can the rules of lashon hora guide you in your journalistic efforts?

    How do Jewish values guide the classic journalism value of “minimizing harm” - treating sources, subjects and colleagues as human beings deserving of respect?

  3. Independence – in development
    Can Jewish values aid – or do they hamper – the exercise of such classic journalism values as being vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable?

    How can a Jewish media organization retain its independence and credibility when it is owned or controlled by the community itself?

  4. Honesty
    Can a Jewish journalist tell a “white lie” to get a story?
