This book gives a concise introduction into Jewish Law as a whole and its development within the different denominations of Judaism. It offers an overview of betrothal, engagement and marriage, gives details of the wedding ceremony, marriage restrictions and marital contracts as well as rules for divorce and re-marriage. Since the State of Israel does not have provisions for civil marriage Jewish family law is still relevant as basis for marriages and divorces among Jewish citizens. This book is especially targeted towards congregational rabbis and those officiating in rabbinical courts, experts of canon and church law, and legal practitioners in the field of international and comparative family law. Theologians and Judaic scholars will also find value in this book.
