cRc Beth Din

Rules and Procedures of the Beth Din

One of the purposes of the Chicago Rabbinical Council (hereafter “cRc”) is to provide a forum where adherents of Jewish law can seek to have their disputes resolved in a manner consistent with the rules of Jewish law (halacha) and with the recognition that many individuals conduct commercial transactions in accordance with the commercial standards of the secular society.

These Rules and Procedures are designed to provide for a process of dispute resolution in a Beth Din which are in consonance with the demands of Jewish law that one diligently pursue justice, while also recognizing the values of peace and compromise. This will be done in a manner consistent with the requirements for binding arbitration so that the resolution will be enforceable in the civil courts of the United States of America and the various states therein.
