Jewish Law

Do you have a question about Jewish law and practice? The best place to start is with your local Conservative/Masorti rabbi, who can answer many questions and help direct you to resources for further reading. [You can use the USCJ Congregation Finder to locate a Conservative/Masorti synagogue near you, or, if you need assistance, you can email to be connected to your nearest RA rabbi.]

If your inquiry regards a halakhic matter not currently addressed by CJLS teshuvot, your RA rabbi can submit the question for potential consideration. Please note that the CJLS can only respond to inquiries from Rabbinical Assembly members, not the general public.

This page contains a wealth of resources for you to explore, including CJLS teshuvot and RA publications available, as well as guidelines for holidays and life cycle events.
