Closed Doors, Open Minds : British Jewry's Secret Disputations, Hardback Book

Closed Doors, Open Minds : British Jewry's Secret Disputations Hardback


For some twenty years from the late 1960s, and thereafter following a brief pause, representatives of British Jewry's religious orientations held closed-door meetings at the Chief Rabbi's residence in attempts to bridge their communal and halachic differences.

So secret were they that barely a word broke through, and until now the details of their often fiery disputations - both verbally and in writing - have never been revealed.

In an exclusive glimpse into this shrouded arena, Closed Doors, Open Minds presents an important new chapter in Meir Persoff's acclaimed series on the British Chief Rabbinate, deftly unraveling the manifold theological and ideological strands of its multi-hued tapestry.
