Fences or Bridges? The Approach of Rabbi Moshe Feinstein to Non-Orthodox and Non-Observant Jews in Light of Nineteenth Century Germany

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rabbi Moshe Feinstein was the preeminent Orthodox decisor of Jewish law in the twentieth century in the United States and perhaps the world. In confronting a Jewish community where Orthodoxy was a minority it was necessary to create an approach to relations with Jews who were not observant or Orthodox. His predecessors in nineteenth century Germany also had innovative responses to the changing religious makeup of the Jewish community. How can these historical-legal texts inform us today?
