(7 case studies)
The Center has published seven issues of Jewish Law Watch, (Hebrew and English) which offers halakhic solutions to actual agunot cases which have languished for years in the rabbinical courts without resolution. Through its new popular series, To Learn and To Teach, Center researchers deal with the halakhic status of women in the synagogue. Issues include The Mehitzah in the Synagogue and Aliyot for Women. Future issues will deal with Women as Shelihot Tzibbur and in the Minyan, and Pre-nuptial Agreements. Each booklet is simultaneously published in Hebrew, English, French, Spanish and Russian.
Rabbi Professor David Golinkin, halakhic scholar and President of the Schechter Institute, directs the program. Rabbis Diana Villa and Monique Susskind Goldberg are senior researchers at the Center. Rabbbi Israel Warman, a lecturer at Schechter, acts as halakhic advisor. All are graduates of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary.
