A remarkable collection of answers has been compiled by the Jewish Chronicle’s two rabbinic columnists – Rabbi Naftali Brawer and Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain of Maidenhead Synagogue – who respond (and periodically contradict each other) in a book that will both entertain and inform.
Questions such as:
Should I inform my best friend that her husband is cheating on her?
Is it acceptable to accompany a friend to a suicide clinic abroad?
Can I lie to my children about taking drugs when I was a teenager?
Our father wants to be cremated, but my mother wants him buried – what should we do?
Can I be Jewish if I do not believe in God?
Can you have a virtual minyan through skyping?
Is a circumcision performed by a non-Jewish surgeon valid?
Can you put a teddy bear in a child’s coffin?
The book costs £12.99 and is available from The Jewish Chronicle online or by calling 020 7415 1570.
