2. An enduring value While much of our contemporary disquiet about privacy tends to spring from technological threats to privacy, a much broader conception of the notion is adopted by many writers on the subject. It includes, in particular, ‘decisional’ privacy (the right of individuals to choose: whether to abort a foetus, their use of contraception, their sexual preferences, and other similar ‘private’ or ‘personal’ decisions). This right to choose is, of course, an extremely important feature of a democratic society, and is fundamental to individual autonomy and freedom, but my own view, explained in this chapter, is that matters

9. ‘Eternal law’, changing times poskim (rabbis who decide the law) have drawn on traditional sources to tackle contemporary problems. This is a crucial exercise. If the Torah is indeed an ‘eternal law’ as the Orthodox claim, it must be possible to obtain guidance from it at all times and in all places. General moral principles are easy enough to derive from the Bible and Talmud, but they don’t easily yield clear answers to specific questions. Clear answers are—in theory, at least—to be found through halakha , ‘law’, the process of legal reasoning based on sources and precedents.

3. Law and morality Is torture wrong? What’s wrong with abortion? Is homosexuality sinful? Moral questions of this kind arise in almost any legal system. And confronting them is among the fundamental characteristics of a free society. Consider the recent landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court declaring that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.Moreover, the language of morals is increasingly employed on the international stage. When an American president described an ‘axis of evil’ existing between certain nations, he was (doubtless unconsciously) presuming a normative yardstick by which to measure the conduct of states that, since
