In addition, the responsa deal with many customs, such as: kissing the tzitzit, spilling drops of wine at the Seder, dairy foods on Shavuot, the Kittel on the High Holidays, and flags on Simhat Torah. The articles deal with issues such as “the middle way” in Judaism, the Jewish attitude towards pluralism and tolerance, and Israel-Diaspora relations.
