Rabbinical courts to stop automatically placing financial burden on divorced fathers.02:39 02.12.15 | 0 comments
More is wrong in this review than in the film. First, in America of 1967, there was not the kind of animosity between religion and science that has more recently been perpetrated by the Haredi sects. Most Jews held with Soloveitchik that Science and Religion were easily reconciled. Besides, the Rabbi of a shul you were a member at is less expensive than a shrink. Second, the community in which the film is set is a Conservative, not a Reform community. There is a lot in the film that tells us this - the prevalence of kippot - not worn by Reform Jews in the 60's - the order of the synagogue service, the instruction in Hebrew, etc. Third, that without a get, Judith would be an Agunah was something that was raised by Sy Abelman. She learned it from him. Pay attention.
