Rabbi Hartman: Surely you acknowledge that Halakha has largely served as a framework of law - it is designed to lay out rules in the abstract, based on an understanding of "divine" texts. And here is the crux of the matter: it is the Rabbis' subjective, but tradition-rooted view of Halakhah that renders them unable to look beyond and see injustice. Justice is defined by the rule of law - if the laws are followed, there cannot be injustice. You wish to impose a different standard, and I applaud you for it - but it will be difficult to convince the religious community to follow you.
