A collection of essays selected from the nearly six decades of Rabbi Walter Wurzburger's illustrious career, this volume combines the author's mastery of Halakha with a deep understanding of Jewish philosophy. By adopting religious cohesion as the cornerstone of his ideas, Rabbi Wurzburger builds a case for the meeting point of ethics and traditional Judaism, delving deeply into the thoughts of some of the greatest Jewish thinkers, especially those of his teacher, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. Covering topics ranging from cooperation with non-Orthodox branches of Judaism to the Sabbath and his concept of modern Orthodoxy, Rabbi Wurzburger's essays are a true representation of the work of an original thinker and leader in the American Jewish community.
