Classical Jewish Texts and Contemporary Public Policy: Bridging the Divide

By Tsvi Blanchard

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2000

The author argues that inherited Jewish texts may be connected to contemporary policy discussion by going with the dominant ideological flow in modern social and political ethics, rather than against it. He sketches out an argument on social welfare policy to illustrate his point, utilizing modern terminology to bridge differences.
