Dialogue About Halachah Is Limited

By Charles S. Liebman

Eugene Borowitz, September 16, 1982

Responding to a paper by David Singer, the author argues that there can be no meaningful dialogue (in the sense of being willing to compromise) on the subject of halachah (Jewish law) between Conservative Jews (and members of liberal Jewish denominations in general) and Orthodox Jews, since the most basic conceptions of the nature of halachah are fundamentally and irrevocably at odds between these groups.
