Journalist Yair Ettinger’s recent book, “Prumim,” provides a window into many debates raging in today’s Dati Leumi world, including partnership minyanim, ascending the Temple Mount, LGBT issues, attitude to the Chief Rabbinate, and women enlisting in the army.

Twenty-five years ago TRADITION featured a major symposium issue, edited by Hillel Goldberg, asking 35 writers to respond to questions on Orthodoxy’s approach to other denominations, the internal relationships of various Orthodox sub-groups, and Orthodoxy’s greatest successes, failures, and threats. How does this snapshot of the Orthodox world a quarter century ago match up to our standards and concerns in the present? What did our writers get more right or less so?
