Rely on Tradition: It Transcends Itself

By Burton M. Leiser

Eugene Borowitz, October 3, 1975

Halacha (Jewish law) may be regarded as the embodiment of Jewish morality in a system of principles and prescriptions for concrete action in everyday affairs. Those aspects of halacha that could benefit all Americans should be enacted into law-not because they are part of halacha, but because they make good sense.
