Synopsis

The last two centuries have brought radical changes to our understanding of the world. The physical and social sciences have provided us with new insights. Philosophical systems, very different from those of earlier ages, have been developed. This has had a major effect on our view of Judaism and its traditions. Judaism was partially shielded from the earlier changes brought about by the Renaissance. However, industrialisation and the revolutions of the 18th Century, which led to the Emancipation, changed all this and gradually affected all spheres of Jewish life. This volume investigates the essentials of modern halakhah. It is done with an appreciation of ealier traditions, but with an open mind and a willingness to explore many different avenues.
