6:30 PM - 8:30 PM Jewish Law Lecture

Multiple Legal Views:
A Comparison of the Methods of Rabbi Joseph Caro and His Contemporaries


Tuesday, February 21, 2017
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.


Already in Roman times, there was a need for guidance in how to decide between multiple legal views. A solution was offered by the lex citationum, the so called “laws of citations” which was included in the Theodosian Code (438). The laws gave rules as to which views should be followed in which situations. In the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, with learned law assuming an ever greater role in the life of towns, European jurists too faced a plethora of legal views.

This talk will focus on how legal humanists proposed to deal with these legal conundrums and compare their approaches to that used by their contemporary, Rabbi Joseph Caro, who was busy creating what would become the standard code of Jewish law, Shulhan Arukh. 

Keynote Speaker:

Edward Fram, Professor of Jewish History at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. His research interests lie in developments in Jewish law in mid-sixteenth century Eastern Europe with a particular emphasis on attempts to codify rabbinic law.

Response by:

Ethan J. Leib, Professor of Law at Fordham Law School. He teaches in contracts, legislation, and regulation.

W. David Myers, Professor of History, Interim Chair of the History Department, Fordham University.

Moderator:

Rabbi Tsvi Blanchard, Meyer Struckmann Professor of Jewish Law at Humboldt Faculty of Law in Berlin. He serves as scholar in residence at the Institute for Law, Religion and Lawyer’s Work at Fordham Law School.
