Summary expansion
Harris (Jewish studies, Harvard U.) describes the fragmentation of modern Judaism in terms of interpretative foundations of classical Judaism, and presents a study of rabbinic legal interpretation (midrash) in Judaism's rabbinic, medieval, and modern periods, demonstrating how the rise of Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox Judaism in the modern period is tied to attitudes toward classical Jewish heritage, and, specifically, toward rabbinic midrash halakah.
