NEW YORK – The Beth Din of America, one of the leading Jewish religious courts in North America, has launched a blog dedicated to explaining Rabbinical Court process and decisions. Jewishprudence will focus on providing information to attorneys and legal professionals regarding Jewish law and Beth Din jurisprudence.
The blog will feature discussions of Beth Din procedure along with substantive issues of Jewish law as it applies to the modern commercial marketplace. Additionally, it will publish some of the decisions rendered by the Beth Din of America (following anonymization, and with the consent of the parties).
Jewishprudence aims to meet two objectives: (1) To make the Din Torah process more transparent and accessible. Jewish law requires parties to settle their disputes in Beth Din in a manner consistent with Jewish law. But many people are unaware of the process, and others are hesitant to bring a case to Beth Din because they don’t know what kind of decision they can expect; (2) to create a sophisticated forum for discussions of Jewish law and business ethics as it applies to the contemporary commercial marketplace.
