Fogel explores the tractate Horayot (Decisions), page by page, and offers a modern commentary with doses of humor and comparative examples. The central focus concerns how to adjudicate cases when the governing body, the Sanhedrin, incorrectly designates certain practices legal and people follow the erroneous advice as a result.
