The Modern Bet Din

By William I. Boxerman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1938

The author describes a renewal of the Bet Din (Jewish court, headed by a rabbi) as a response to the anti-Semitism that arises when Jewish legal problems are heard in secular courts. He also explains how a Bet Din functions and is integrated into the American legal system.
