Expanding the Hedge: The Primacy of Law in Love

By Tova Warburg Sinensky

Tradition | Summer 2021 Issue 53.3

Yoetzet Halacha Tova Warburg Sinensky, granddaughter of Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm, analyses his influential work on Taharat HaMishpacha, A Hedge of Roses: Insights into Marriage and Married Life

“Analysis of this book, in tandem with R. Lamm’s other works, supports the thesis that A Hedge of Roses offers more than novel ta’amei ha-mitzvot. Instead, A Hedge of Roses is to be viewed as one of many expressions of R. Lamm’s broader philosophy in the role of Jewish law in protecting human relationships.”
