Formulating responses in an egalitarian age
At first glance, Orthodox Judaism may not seem compatible with the prevailing world view of egalitarianism, regardless of race, gender or religion. But modern Orthodox Jews share an appreciation for egalitarianism as a positive moral value, and do not simply dismiss this contemporary ethos as incompatible with their faith. This collection of essays from leading Orthodox scholars in the field, explores the affinities and disaffinities between egalitarianism and Jewish tradition. Visit our website for sample chapters!
