Judicial Deviation in Talmudic Law: Governed by Men, Not by Rules
Access Full Text
With the publication of this book, the author inaugurates a new series at the Institute of Jewish Law. In recent years there has been a growing interest in Jewish law in American law schools. In turn, this casts an obligation on those involved in Jewish law to make available in the English language publications which focus on contemporary issues and their analysis in traditional Jewish sources. Jewish Law in Context will attempt to do precisely this by presenting Jewish law in its own context as well as in the context of our milieu.
