American Reform Responsa: Collected Responsa of the Central Conference of American Rabbis 1889-1983

American Reform Responsa

Originally published in 1983, this collection was edited by Rabbi Walter Jacob, then the Chair of the CCAR Responsa Committee. This collection deals with such questions as: should a remarried woman observe a deceased husband's yahrzeit? Is euthenasia ever permissible? May a shofar be sounded on Shabbat? Must an adult convert be circumcised? Should funeral services be held for suicides? May a woman wear a tallit? Responsa are rabbinic answers to actual questions of Jewish law and practice, and throughout history have provided a guiding force in shaping Jewish life.
