Halakhic Man, Authentic Jew: Modern Expressions of Orthodox Thought From Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik and Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits is a comparative study of the thought of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik and Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits by Ira Bedzow about what constitutes a model Jew and the understanding and presentation of Halakha in a modern era.
“Rabbi Bedzow possesses a rare combination of lomdus and profound philosophical knowledge. His work compels a reexamination of the most fundamental ideas of the Mesorah. A must read.”
– Rabbi Fishel Todd, Founder of Yeshivat Pirchei Shoshanim
“With intellectual honesty and disarming humility, Bedzow sheds much light on the complex interplay of Orthodoxy and modernity. Any thinking Jew will be delighted by this sophisticated and insightful study.”
