About the Author

Prof. Avi Sagi is a member of Bar-Ilan University's Department of Philosophy and is founder and director of that university's Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Hermeneutics and Cultural Studies.


'This book is a tour de force, a rare combination of comprehensive scholarship, insight, fresh thinking and wisdom...This is by far, the best book on this topic in the English language. It is at once a rich survey of the rabbinic dialogue on giyyur through the generations and a sophisticated deconstruction of the paradigms underlying the various and changing halachic rulings in history. It is also tacitly a polemic with the ideological rejection of conversion which has grown apace in the past century. This book is not to be missed!'
Rabbi Irving Yitz Greenberg
