This collection of essays seeks to understand the tension between contemporary and traditional elements in the thought, practices, and life of Modern Orthodox Jewry. Together, they are a fascinating study of the balance that occurs between modernity and traditionalism, whereby faith and practice emerge from the encounter adapted but not wholly transformed.
Dr. Moshe Z. Sokol is associate professor and chairman of the philosophy department at Touro College in New York, as well as Rabbi of the Yavneh Minyan of Flatbush, New York.
