Explores the variety of ways that the Jewish understanding of the Covenant relates to the notion of a contract or a shared grammar as developed in recent structural and post-structural theory. The volume enters the debate on the relationship between a variety of open-ended forms of text interpretation and traditional Jewish interpretive practice, balancing the assumption of the openness of interpretation with an exploration of the concurrent restrictions on interpretation imposed by a covenant.
