520 |a "Many times people speak passionately and dogmatically about Jewish law, not only because they believe their opinion is correct, but because they don't even realize there's another legitimate option out there. Yet a perusal of any quality halakhic journal will show that on most contemporary controversies, there is a range of opionions, all grounded in Jewish sources and halakhic reasoning. This is especially true if one inclues (as one should) scholars from the full range of halakhic community, without excluding anyone for his ideological stances on, say, Zionism or secular studies... The essays in this book cite scholars across the ideological spectrum, with the conviction that true discourse is created only when one respects the scholarship of the entire community. I hope readers will use this work not only to become informed about specific topics, but also to get a general sense of contemporary halakhic discourse." -- inside book cover
