Jewish religious law : a progressive perspective by John D Rayner( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between Liberal Judaism and Rabbinic Law (Halachah) is unclear. Some Progressive Jews have chosen to reject it completely, others have simply gone along with it when it suited them and ignored it when it didn't. This new book represents a plea for a positive yet forthrightly critical approach to Rabbinic Law. By addressing a variety of specific topics - the language of prayer, the status of women, medical confidentiality, euthanasia, Jewish identity, contraception, divorce and Jewish territorial rights in Palestine/Israel - Rayner makes a valuable contribution to the ongoing discussion of the role that the law should play in Liberal Judaism today."--BOOK JACKET
