About This Title

Legal Scholarship in Jewish Law: An Annotated Bibliography of Journal Articles by David Hollander annotates the legal literature addressing issues of Jewish law. Jewish law courses, scholarship, and collections have been increasing in frequency and size in American law schools for several decades. Today, many law schools house institutes and centers for the study of Jewish law. This bibliography documents the history and content of the Jewish law scholarship that is at the foundation of these institutes. Entries come mostly from American law reviews, but some articles published in other countries, such as Britain, Canada, and Israel, are also included.

The articles and annotations are arranged under 37 topics (plus general works), in chronological order. A small glossary at the end provides definitions of terms that are commonly addressed in the annotations, and is followed by an author index.

The literature featured in this bibliography demonstrates that Jewish law scholarship in the legal academy is rich, varied and complex, made up of multiple strands and streams—some connecting to each other, some independent, and some related to areas of treatment beyond Jewish law. The title covers a broad range of issues: commercial law, constitutional law, criminal law, family law, medical ethics law, and many more.

Hollander’s annotations of the articles go beyond mere summaries, offering both helpful digests and thoughtful comments, thereby providing the researcher with invaluable guidance as to the relevance and utility of an article toward a given research project.
