Perspectives (L’Eylah)

October 10, 1986
leylah 21

In this section of L'Eylah we provide a review of ideas in circulation - religious, ethical and social - which have appeared recently in book or periodical form. We take a look at intellectual developments in the Jewish world in Israel and America, and at those debates in the non Jewish world from which we have something to learn, or to which we have something to add. In some cases we give briefings on books available on a subject of current concern.

In this issue we look at Rabbis in America, a controversy about the ArtScroll publications, compartmentalisation as a Jewish response to modernity, and the recent history of Jewish-Christian relations.
