Jewish Perspectives on Law and Religion in the Nordic Countries in the 21st Century

Trautner-Kromann, Hanne LU (2010) In Law & Religion in the 21st Century - Nordic Perspectives. p.477-503
Abstract
An introduction to Judaism as text-centered traditions and conceptions of law, along with an outline of the Jewish legal history, is given as frame for a more specific presentation of the history of the Jews in the Nordic societies up to modern times with Denmark as the main example, including potential problems such as ritual slaughter and circumcision. The close relationship between Jewish law and ethics, and human rights, is discussed, supplemented with a perspective on the contemporary condition of Jews as a minority coping with problems of identity and assimilation.
