Louis Jacobs, Dr. Ishmar Schorsch (editor)

Now revised and expanded, Louis Jacobs's fascinating study shows how halakhic rulings through the ages have been influenced by social, economic, theological, and even political factors as well as by consideration of the wider ideals and demands of Judaism. Halakhic responses to changed social considerations, particularly regarding women and questions of personal status, new techologoes and discoveries, and attitudes to non-Jews are all considered in depth.
