Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society

Welcome to the

Journal of Halacha & Contemporary Society

The Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society is published twice a year by the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School. We welcome comments on the articles that have appeared in the Journal and suggestions for future issues. They should be sent to the Editor, Rabbi Benzion Sommerfeld, at RJJJournal@gmail.com.

​Manuscripts submitted for consideration should be in Word format and sent via email to Rabbi Sommerfeld. Each article will be reviewed by a competent halachic authority. In view of the particular nature of the Journal, we are especially interested in articles that concern contemporary halachic issues.

More generally, it is the purpose of this Journal to study through the prism of Torah law and values major questions facing us as Jews in the twenty-first century. This encompasses the review of relevant biblical and talmudic passages and the survey of halachic literature, including recent responses. Most importantly, the Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society does not present itself as the halachic authority on any question. Rather, the aim is to inform the religious Jewish public of positions taken by respected rabbinic leaders over the generations.

Correspondence can be sent to Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society, 1 Plainfield Ave, Edison, NJ 08817.
