Review quote

One of the remarkable features of this anthology is the scope of the reviews it presents. Because it is accessible to a wide audience, lay persons who must face agonizing choices will find this meaningful work an excellent guide to decision making. They [Dorf and Newman] open the rich diversity of Jewish ideas, ideals and practices...this anthology is an absolute necessity for the contemporary Jew who wants to strive to live a thoughtful and meaningful life. It has to be read slowly, savoured, and constantly reviewed. It does not belong on the shelves of the rabbis, Jewish scholars, ethicists, and ordinary people, but in their hands. It is simply the best in its field. It is post-modern and it will endure. The Jerusalem Post This splendidly organized and edited volume gathers together an impressive range of published essays on contemporary Jewish ethics.
