He was ordained in Jewish civil and ritual law at the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School and is the spiritual leader of Brooklyn's Young Israel of Avenue J.A noted authority on Jewish commercial law, Professor Levine's research specialty is the interface between economics and Halakhah, especially as it relates to public policy and modern business practices. He has published widely on these issues, including four books and numerous monographs. His books include Free Enterprise and Jewish Law (1980); Economics and Jewish Law (1987); Economic Public Policy and Jewish Law (1993); and Case Studies in Jewish Business Ethics (2000).An associate editor of Tradition, Rabbi Levine also serves on an ad hoc basis on the Bet Din (rabbinical court) of the Rabbinical Council of America for disputes in monetary matters. Dr. Levine is a member of the World Jewish Academy of Science and the recipient of the Irving M. Bunim Prize for Jewish Scholarship. In 1982, he was respondent to Milton Friedman in the Liberty Fund symposium on the Morality of the Market.
"A striking combination of the wisdom of Jewish law and modern economics. In an age of business scandals and claims that universities neglect instilling moral values in their students, this extraordinary book serves a worthy purpose." —Dr. Dennis Carlton, Professor of Economics, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business; Co-editor, The Journal of Law & Economics ". . . Through his mastery of many disciplines, Rabbi Levine presents a Living Torah which gives constant direction through the vicissitudes of life. This exemplifies a genuine Sanctification of G-d's name [Kiddush Hashem]." —Rabbi David Cohen, Rav of Congregation Gvul Yaabetz and Ohel Foster Homes
