Religious observance in all areas of life was an issue of major importance to the Qumran community. Several collections of laws or halakhot from Qumran bear witness to the parallel development of these laws with those that emerged within Rabbinic Judaism. This volume includes editions of several such compositions of which Tohorot is the largest. They provide major insight into the development of early halakha. This collection of halakhic compositions should be studied in conjunction with the Temple Scroll, 4QMiqsat Maase ha-Torah, the Damascus Document, Serekh ha-Yahad, and sundry similar compositions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a very important volume which has been well produced by both the editors and the publishers. It puts into the public domain a number of legal compositions which, alongside other works of a broadly similar nature, are increasingly seen as vital for our understanding of the identity, origins and nature of the group behind the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls ... This addition to the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series will rightly be welcomed by all engaged in Dead Sea Scrolls study, as well as by others with wider research interests in Jewish law. * Journal of Semitic Studies *
An important and interesting collection of texts. * Journal for the Study of the Old Testament *
