THE SOLOMON B.
OF PROGRESSIVE HALAKHAH
- We are a research center devoted to studying, teaching, and exploring the progressive character of the halakhah in accordance with the principles of liberal Judaism.
- We seek to apply the insights of progressive halakhah to the ritual, social, political, and ethical issues of our time.
- We sponsor symposia and scholarly publications that facilitate a broad range of discussion, open new vistas, and enable readers to appreciate the dynamic nature of the Jewish legal tradition.
