Search Committee by Marc Angel

Book Description

When the leader of a venerable Torah academy passes away, a search committee begins to interview two candidates, both serious and committed Torah scholars. However, the resemblance ends there. One is the previous leader's son, a staunch traditionalist determined to keep to the old ways, while the other is a university graduate with a modern, open-minded perspective. The candidates hold opposing views about the role of the yeshiva, the ideals of Torah Judaism, the role of women in the community, and the future of Orthodoxy and the Jewish people. As they and their wives, colleagues, students, and donors address the committee, a dramatic story emerges about the ways in which a traditional community may embrace or reject the modern world.
