Contemporary Jewish Ethics and Morality

A Reader

Edited by Elliot N. Dorff and Louis E. Newman

The first text of its kind in almost two decades, Contemporary Jewish Ethics and Morality presents wide-ranging and carefully organized recent essays on Jewish ethical theory and practice. Serving as an introduction to Jewish ethics by acquainting the reader with the distinctive methodological issues involved, as well as offering a sampling of Jewish positions on contemporary moral problems, the text features work from both traditionalist and liberal contributors, making this the only volume which encompasses the full range of contemporary Jewish ethical perspectives. Many of the readings appear here for the first time, making this important text the most timely sourcebook in its field. With an up-to-date bibliography of Jewish ethics and law, this work makes a fundamental contribution to courses in Jewish ethics.
