Rabbinic Authority free pdf Introducing English-speaking readers to the parameters and scope of rabbinic authority in general, and the workings of the institution of the beit din --the Jewish court of law--in particular, this book presents 10 rulings in cases of Jewish civil law that the author handed down as a member of a beit din panel. These decisions touch on matters pertaining to employment termination, tenure rights and severance pay, rabbinic contracts, issues in the not-for-profit boardroom, real estate brokerage commission, drafting a halakhic will, a revocable living trust agreement, the division of marital assets upon divorce, spousal abuse, and a father's duty to support his estranged children. Accompanying these presentations is an examination of the notion of rabbinic authority, the business judgment rule, and an agunah 's ability to recover for the infliction of emotional stress.
