The London Beth Din (The Court of the Chief Rabbi) by Dayan A. Feldman, London 1929.

8j Feldman_0001This little booklet was originally a Paper read before the Society for Jewish Jurisprudence (English Branch) in London on 17th December 1928. It explains clearly the organization of the Beth Din, its functions, and the nature of the cases brought before it.

8j Feldman_0002Asher Feldman was born in 1873 in Russia, and came to England as a boy. He was educated at Jews College and University College, London, and received the rabbinical diploma (Semicha) from the Chief Rabbi in 1899. In 1902, the Beth Din was expanded when two young English-trained rabbis were appointed as Dayanim – Asher Feldman and Moses Hyamson. An engraving of the members of the Beth Din, including the two young Rabbis is here. Dayan Feldman was also Rabbi of the Stoke Newington Synagogue.
