A Concise Code of Jewish Law for Converts
By Michael J. Broyde

Product Description
While the topic of conversion in Judaism has been extensively covered, no single book has explored the particular laws related to a convert after conversion. In A Concise Code of Jewish Law for Converts, Rabbi Michael J. Broyde explores many topics and questions that revolve around the life of a Jewish convert. Such topics include the place of a convert in a Jewish community according to Jewish law, the treatment of a convert with respect to acceptance and discrimination, and providing affirmative incentives to converts. Containing a detailed review of every aspect of Jewish law from the convert’s perspective and in relation to them, as well as related supplemental essays, A Concise Code of Jewish Law for Converts provides knowledge and guidance on life after conversion.

About the Author:
Michael J. Broyde is Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law and a Senior Fellow at Emory University’s Center for the Study of Law and Religion. He served for many years as the Yoshev Rosh (chair) and a dayan (judge) in the Southeast Rabbinical Court for Conversion, which was part of the GPS Conversion network. He also served as a dayan in the Beth Din of America and as its director. He was the founding Rabbi of the Young Israel in Atlanta, where he served for many years as the rabbi.
