This article aims to deal with the concept of mamzer which signifies a special class of people, according to Jewish law and to give a of contemporary discussion about it. Mamzer is a child of adulterous or incestuous relation. Although the word of mamzer occurs in the Bible in Deuteronomy 23:3, the details of the concept and the legal status of mamzer is defined by later rabbinic authorities. Mamzer is subjected to certain social and legal restrictions. Mamzer is labeled with a socio -- legal stigma because of his / her parents' acts, even he / she has personally committed no wrongdoing. This is not acceptable for contemporary legal thought. From this perspective, there is an increasing criticism towards traditional approach to mamzer.
