Von Hiob zu Horkheimer gesammelte Schriften zum Judentum und seiner Umwelt by Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich( )
4 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The well-known Judaic scholar and historian, Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich (1921-2007), started his academic career in 1940 at the Berlin College for Judaic Studies. In 1943 he successfully fled from Nazi Germany to Switzerland. He held academic posts at the Universities of Zurich, Basle, Frankfurt/Main and Berlin. From an early stage in his career, Ehrlich worked for dialogue between Jews and Christians. During the Second Vatican Council he was an adviser to Cardinal Augustin Bea drafting the statement Nostrae Aetate dealing with relations between the Catholic Church and non-Christian religions. This volume in the series Studia Judaica brings together Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich's writings on the history, theology and ethics of Judaism and it honors the founder of the series Studia Judaica. They illustrate the breadth of his academic interests and testify to his life-long efforts to make knowledge about Jewish religion and culture available to a wide readership."--Publisher's website

Das jüdische Eherecht ist eines der religiösen Rechtsfelder, die Rabbiner in ihrer Praxis am meisten beschäftigen. Im Staat Israel ist das jüdische Familienrecht bis heute für die Regelung von Eheschließung und Scheidung zwischen Juden relevant. Das Buch führt in das Jüdische Recht insgesamt und in seine Entwicklung in den verschiedenen Strömungen des Judentums ein. Es folgt ein Überblick über Brautwerbung, Verlobung, Details der Eheschließung wie Zeugenregeln und Festsetzung des Trautermins sowie Eheverbote. Dabei werden die Themen Jüdischer Status, Mischehe und Übertritt zum Judentum ebenso behandelt wie die Entwicklung von der Polygamie zur Monogamie und die Leviratsehe. Welche besonderen Regeln gelten für Angehörige der Priesterkaste? Was beinhaltet der Ehevertrag, die ""Ketubba""? Warum wird bei der Trauung ein Glas zerbrochen, was hat es mit dem Ehering auf sich und mit den Segensprüchen während der Eheschließung? Welche ehelichen Pflichten bestehen nach erfolgter Eheschließung, und können gleichgeschlechtliche Paare heiraten? Auch die Auflösung der Ehe durch Scheidung wird eingehend behandelt, Abfassung und Wortlaut des Scheidebriefes sowie die rechtlichen Folgen einer Scheidung werden erläutert. Das Buch richtet sich insbesondere an Rabbiner in der Gemeindepraxis, an Experten des kanonischen und kirchlichen Rechts und an Juristen, die sich mit vergleichendem Familienrecht beschäftigen. Auch Theologen und Judaisten lesen das Buch mit Gewinn
