Rabbi Prof. Joel Roth has been one of the major poskim of the Conservative/Masorti movement for over fifty years.
This volume contains twenty-one responsa which he wrote for the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards from 1981-2006. They deal with topics such as Torah reading by a minor, Yom Tov Sheni for visitors to Israel, Hattafat Dam Brit, matrilineal descent, intermarriage, homosexuality, organ donations, and the ordination of women as rabbis. It also contains three articles reflecting Rabbi Roth’s approach to halakhah, selected by Rabbi Roth himself.
