Jewish Law encompasses a broad spectrum of subjects, and in sufficient depth that professors can adapt the materials to their individual teaching methods. By combining jurisprudence, comparative law, and practical law in one clear and concise text, this casebook provides background and perspective for students as well as practitioners. It contrasts the treatment of various topics in Jewish law with the approaches taken by other legal systems, such as American, English, and modern Israeli, thereby offering new insights. The translations from Hebrew to English preserve the original flavor of the Hebrew text.
Justice Elon is a legendary figure in Jewish law. He founded and headed the Institute for Research in Jewish Law at the Hebrew University. He was consulted by the Israeli legislature regarding Jewish law issues during the codification of Israeli Civil Law and served as a member of legislative committees. His three-volume treatise, Jewish Law: Ha-Mishpat Ha-Ivri, has become a classic work on the subject in Israel. As a law professor for over 30 years and an ordained rabbi, Justice Elon brings his teaching expertise to this text. His co-authors are also noted and distinguished legal scholars and practitioners, and were the translators of Justice Elon’s treatise, Jewish Law (Ha-Mishpat Ha-Ivri), into English.
"This is a landmark achievement. It will not only make it vastly easier for those of use who struggle to find suitable materials in English to present to our students, it will provide an excellent resource for scholars… It serves to legitimate the work that many professors have performed in this field." – Professor Steven F. Friedell, Rutgers Law School.
