Description: A compilation of the 150 separate entries in the Encyclopaedia Judaica on the subject of Jewish Law. These embrace all aspects of the subject: sources of law; general part; execution; public and administrative law; and conflict of laws. In each entry the principle or institution of the law involved is discussed and the main details of that law or institution are given in a clear and concise fashion. The description and the discussion are from two aspects; the first from the internal point of view of Jewish law, and the second in comparison with the accepted discipline in ancient general law and in contemporary Israeli general law, showing the points of similarity and difference. The source of each item in every entry is indicated and there is a detailed bibliography of research material for each entry.
