Responsa on Contemporary Jewish Women's Issues
No one interested in Jewish women's issues or contemporary Halakhah can afford to forgo this book. For the first time, twenty-four modern responsa have been translated from the Hebrew, including four never before published. From mehitzah in the synagogue to the blessing recited by men, shelo asani ishah "who has not made me a woman, " from women's prayer groups to hair covering, and from Talmud study to limiting family size, Responsa on Contemporary Jewish Women's Issues written by Rabbi Yehuda Henkin treats current and controversial topics with authority and erudition, forcefulness and grace.
