Equality Lost: Essays in Torah Commentary, Halacha, and Jewish Thought , Rabbi Yehuda Herzl Henkin
Description: At last, a posek (a recognized expert in Jewish law) and author of three volumes of Responsa, has written a book illustrating the depth and sensitivity of Jewish law and thought in addressing crucial issues of our time. Rabbi Yehuda Henkin fearlessly confronts modern as well as timeless questions. His original interpretations and views are solidly based upon traditional sources and the oral transmission of the enlightened spirit of Judaism. In Equality Lost, Rabbi Henkin teaches how to extract the straight-forward explanation (peshat) in the Torah and demonstrates how to interpret Halacha in regard to women in the age of feminism, the conversion to Judaism of children in non-observant homes, and the killing of captured terrorists. Readers will immediate recognize the direct, sensible, and authentically Jewish evaluations of current phenomena such as the glatt kosher craze. In addition, the author provides fresh and unsettling insights into the reasons for the destruction of the Second Temple, the lessons to be learned therefrom, and the ramifications of these lessons for the modern State of Israel.
