In Partnership With God Jewish Law Summary


In Partnership With God Jewish Law: Contemporary Jewish Law and Ethics by Byron L. Sherwin

According to Jewish scholar Byron Sherwin, while Jewish tradition always emphasized the nexus between thought and action, theory and practice, modern Jewish scholarship severed that relationship. Modern scholars seem prone to over-specialization in minute sub-areas of Jewish studies or limit their scholarly investigations to specific texts that are written in specific lands during specific periods, without surveying the breadth of classic Jewish sources. In contrast, Sherwin draws from the vast resources of classic Jewish texts in a quest for solutions to today's troubling concerns, offering a novel agenda and methodology for contemporary Jewish scholarship.
