Abstract:

Presented here to the public for the first time, the Pinkas of the Metz Beit Din is the official register of civil cases that came before the Metz rabbinic court in the two decades prior to the French Revolution. Brimming with details of commercial transactions, inheritance disputes, women's roles in economic life, and the interplay between French law and Jewish law, the Metz Pinkas offers remarkable evidence of the engagement of Jews with the surrounding society and culture. The two volumes of 'Protocols of Justice' comprise the complete text of the Metz Pinkas Beit Din, which is fully annotated by Jay R. Berkovitz, and a thorough analysis of its significance for history and law at the threshold of modernity.
