Description

"A complete handbook to divorce according to Jewish law. In authoritative & direct style, Rabbi Bulka describes the nuts-&-bolts of the divorce process, with insightful explanations & thoughtful reminders of the decency & compassion of the Jewish system."--Diane Medved, PhD, Author of THE CASE AGAINST DIVORCE. "Instructive, absorbing & reflecting a wealth of knowledge & experience."--Lord Immanuel Jakobovits, Rabbi Emeritus of England & President of the Conference of European Rabbis. "As one of the most perceptive & articulate Rabbis of our time, Rabbi Bulka has written a work of exceptional importance. He has correctly understood the need to give Jewish guidance in the matter of divorce. This book is straightforward, sensitive & eminently practical."--Rabbi Marc Angel, Congregation Shearith Israel, NYC. "I would recommend this book to all couples who are having some marital problems, as well as couples who are about to marry. A delightful presentation on a very stressful topic in Jewish family life today."--Benjamin Schlesinger, PhD, Professor at the University of Toronto & author of JEWISH FAMILY ISSUES, A RESOURCE GUIDE. "Taking Jewish ethics as a starting point, Dr. Bulka discusses in considerable detail the divorce procedure in its many aspects. There is, he notes, a Jewish way in marriage & there is a Jewish way in divorce. This book, however, is much more than a Jewish divorce manual. It is as much about divorce as it is ways to prevent it, to preserve a marriage."--Herman M. van Praag, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine. "Finally, a clear, informed & sensitive guide to the entire divorce process written by a prominent Orthodox Rabbi."--Chaim I. Waxman, PhD, Professor of Sociology, Rutgers Univ.… (more)
