The Jewish Encyclopedia of Moral and Ethical Issues delineates the Jewish attitudes on seventy-one subjects from Advertising to Zero Population Growth and includes such topics as Cults, Miracles, Sex, and War. Through his investigation of the Torah, Mishnah, Gemara, and Midrash, as well as later authorities such as Maimonides, Nachmanides, Rashi, and the Code of Jewish Law, Amsel assembles and exacts a lucid, intuitive, and enlightening reference work. As a highly regarded educator, Rabbi Amsel has earned a reputation for his ability to teach about the most contemporary of issues and their connection to Jewish tradition. With a keen impartiality, the author provides a Jewish view that transcends any specific denomination within Judaism.
