About this Text
Contemporary Halakhic Problems is a multi-volume book of halakhic (legal) reasoning on modern issues by Rabbi J. David Bleich, a distinguished bioethicist and professor of law and Talmud. Rabbi Bleich provides lucid summaries and analyses of classic halakhic questions alongside pioneering applications of Jewish law to current social, political, technological and religious issues. The work is not a practical halakhic guide, but is rather devoted to theoretical analysis.
