The relationship between religion and state has come under renewed scrutiny in contemporary American political conversation. In Israel too this issue continues to be hotly debated, touching as it does on fundamental questions as to the nature of halakhah, Judaism, and the Jewish State.
Please join us as we explore these and other questions on three Wednesday evenings (June 7, 14, and 21), from 7:30 to 9pm. The lectures will be followed by Maariv.
June 7 – Halakhah in the Shadow of the Modern State – Yonatan Brafman
June 14 – Separation of Church and State in the Jewish, Islamic, and American Traditions – Shlomo Pill
June 21 – The Modern State in the Eyes of Halakhah – Adina Levine
