Item description for Equality Lost : Essays in Torah Commentary, Halacha, and Jewish Thought by Yehuda Henkin & J. H. Henkin...

In Equality Lost, Rabbi Yehuda Henkin teaches us how to extract the peshat in the Torah and demonstrates how to interpret Halacha in regard to women in the age of feminism, the conversion to Judaism of children in non-observant homes, and the killing of captured terrorists. Readers will immediately recognize the direct, sensible, and authentically Jewish evaluations of current phenomena such as the glatt kosher craze. In addition, he gives us fresh and unsettling insights into the reasons for the destruction of the Second Temple, the lessons to be learned therefrom, and the ramifications of these lessons for the State of Israel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Equality Lost : Essays in Torah Commentary, Halacha, and Jewish Thought?

A great introduction to Modern Orthodox Jewish Thought  Apr 18, 2006
Most of the books that are available in English from an Orthodox Jewish perspective are simple apologetics from the extreme right wing of the haredi "ultra Orthodox" community. This book is a thought provoking exception to this rule.

Inspite of the title of the book it contains several fascinating essays that have nothing to do with issues of equality. Equality Lost is itself the title of the first essay in the book, a commentary on the 2nd chapter of genesis. There are other issues
relating to women's issues ranging from women saying kaddish or reading Megillas Esther and modesty. The articles will not please ideologues looking for talking points for a debate. Instead the educate the reader into the complexity of the halachic (Jewish law) process on these issues.

Other issues discussed in the book include a discussion ranging from how to understand different ways of interpreting the written Torah known as peshat and derash to a biography of his father Rabbi Yosef Eliyahu Henkin.
