Join us in celebrating the publication of Dr. Ellenson and Dr. Gordis’ new book, Pledges of Jewish Allegiance: Conversion, Law, and Policy-Making in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Orthodox Responsa.This exciting public dialogue will feature two of the most influential Jewish scholars of our day, Dr. David Ellenson and Dr. Daniel Gordis. Probe the challenges to Jewish self-definition in the modern period by examining a wide array of legal opinions on conversion and intermarriage, written by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Orthodox rabbis in Europe, the United States, and Israel, and discover how these rabbinic decisions are, in fact, attempts to define policy for Judaism in the modern period.
