Jay R. Berkovitz -- The Napoleonic Sanhedrin: Halachic Foundations and Rabbinical Legacy

In earlier post at the Seforim blog, Dan Rabinowitz reviewed the Jay R. Berkovitz's book מסורת ומהפיכה-תרבות יהודית בצרפת בראשית העת החדשה, which discusses French Jewry and specifically the changes and challenges of modernity. On a similar topic, included in a CCAR Journal symposium marking the 200th anniversary of the "Assembly of Jewish Notables," is Jay R. Berkovitz, "The Napoleonic Sanhedrin: Halachic Foundations and Rabbinical Legacy," CCAR Journal: A Reform Jewish Quarterly 54:1 (Winter 2007): 11-34, available (for free) online here (PDF).
