Every year prior to Passover, observant Jews sell their leavened products (chametz) to someone who is not Jewish and then buy them back after the holiday. Loopholes like this practice, often generate cynicism that Jewish law is more legalistic than it is values-laden. Join Elana Stein Hain for an alternative view: a deep dive into the theological, social, and legal logic and meaning behind the rabbinic phenomenon of legal loopholes as we celebrate the publication of her new book, Circumventing the Law: Rabbinic Perspectives on Loopholes and Legal Integrity.
