Orthodox and Non-Orthodox Judaism: How to Square the Circle
Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), December 1997
The author describes the political religious conflict in Israel about the validity of non-Orthodox authority and religious legitimacy, placing it in the historical context of the contentious evolution of Israeli versus Diaspora authority in terms of speaking and making decisions on behalf of world Jewry. He praises the Neeman Committee's proposed solution of permitting Reform and Conservative rabbis to be involved in religious rites like conversion and marriage, but only according to halachic rulings decided by an overseeing bodies that have a majority Orthodox representation.
