      But quite clearly, it is the halakhic conscience that creates the interpretation” (Berkovits, p 22). I will have more to say about R’ Berkovits’ book in later posts, but for now I’d like to focus on his treatment of the famous sugya in Bava Metzia 59b: the Tanur of Achnai (analyzed in depth here, and summarized here). The following teshuvah is not so much an answer to a halakhic question, but a response to the author of a new book on halakha who had sent his book to Rav Waldenberg, presumably for an approbation. To make it clear that he had actually read some of the book, Rav Waldenberg shares with the author some feedback.   A third of Hartman's current book is devoted to a discussion of Halakhic Man, an essay in which the Ray propounds the centrality of halakhah in Jewish thought. R. Soloveitchik emphasizes halakhah's this-worldly, here-and-now grounding, as opposed to religious approaches that focus on the nature of the transcendent realm.
