Mission Statement:

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.
