Alcalay's Basic Encyclopedia of Jewish Proverbs ( New York: Hartmore House, 1973), s.v. "Marriage."

SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER READING
Eugene Borowitz, Choosing a Sex Ethic: A Jewish Inquiry ( New York: Schocken Books, 1969); though somewhat dated, is nonetheless an informative and thoughtful examination of the liberal critique of traditional Jewish perspectives on premarital sex. Excellent notes and references.
David Feldman, Marital Relations, Birth Control, and Abortion in Jewish Law ( New York: Schocken Books, 1978), is a very technical but copious and complete discussion of the halakhic (Jewish legal) attitudes to birth control, abortion, and sexuality. The classic treatise on the subject, it may prove difficult for the lay reader.
Robert Gordis, Love and Sex: A Modern Jewish Perspective ( New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1978), is a good example of the Conservative movement's attempt to remain faithful to the Jewish moral and legal traditions while also addressing the ethical critiques of modernity. See also an earlier work by the same author, Sex and the Family in the Jewish Tradition, ( New York: Burning Bush Press, 1967).
Isaac Klein, A Guide to Jewish Religious Practice ( New York: Jewish Theological Seminary of America, 1979), is the standard reference work on Jewish law by a very traditional Conservative rabbi. Though not all Hebrew terms are translated, the work is very accessible to the lay reader, and contains several chapters on marriage and family purity. The rest of the volume addresses the other elements of the Jewish life cycle, the yearly calendar cycle, and dietary laws.
Maurice Lamm, The Jewish Way in Love and Marriage ( San Francisco: Harper % Row, 1979) provides an excellent look at and intelligent argument for the modern Orthodox perpective on marriage, with a detailed discussion of all the elements of the wedding ceremony, from a well-known Orthodox rabbi.
Norman Lamm, A Hedge of Roses: Jewish Insights into Marriage and Married Life ( New York: Feldheim, 1966), is the classic modern Orthodox treatise defending the laws of "family purity." It does not reflect the feminist argument stated in this chapter, but summarizes the more usual explanations in an easily readable format.
Michael Strassfeld and Sharon Strassfeld, eds., The Jewish Catalog, 3 vols. ( Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 1973- 1980), is a popular set of volumes representing the havurah movement's approach to Jewish tradition. A development resulting largely from 1960s social forces, the havurahphe-
