Item Description:

On its face, Boaz’s marriage to Ruth, a Moabite princess, seems to have been forbidden outright. If not for the Oral Law, we would not know that it was permitted, nor would we understand the reasons why. But the Oral Law has the last word in Jewish life, and Rabbi Wein takes us on a tour through Jewish history, showing how it came to be that way.

• Korach v. Moshe – the first challenge to Oral Law
• the radical innovations of Yehuda HaNassi
• the history of the Karaites and other break-off movements
• from Reform to secular: similar, but not identical
