    The program will address the use of rabbinical courts (“Beth Dins”) as alternative forums for the resolution of civil disputes in the United States today. Panelists will discuss (from descriptive, policy, and constitutional perspectives) the functions and value of rabbinical courts and the legality of enforcing awards issued by and agreements to arbitrate before them.
