|The purpose of Hakirah, The Flatbush Journal of Jewish Law and Thought, is to promote the intellectual and spiritual growth of the Jewish community.|
To accomplish this Hakirah will:
|●||Provide an opportunity for members of our community who have been studying in depth to disseminate the results of their study for careful review.|
|●||Encourage others to join in this type of study.|
|●||Create a forum for the discussion of issues of hashkafah and halakhah relevant to the community from a perspective of careful analysis of the primary Torah sources.|
Members of the community are encouraged to
comment on the articles that they have read and subsequent issues will allow
considerable space for the readerís comments and the authorís response.
