Edited by Ari Mermelstein, along with Victoria Saker Woeste, Ethan Zadoff, and Marc Galanter, with chapters by leading scholars in their fields.

This anthology engages with the complexity of what it is to be Jewish—and, more problematically, what it means both to be Jewish and participate in legal systems.
