Talmud Class: Tractate Sanhedrin and Jewish Political Thought

Rabbi Meir Soloveichik

These shiurim will examine the Talmudic discussions of subjects that pertain to Jewish political thought including: the Jewish judiciary known as the Sanhedrin, the virtues and perils of the monarchy, and the nature of rabbinic authority. We will ponder what these texts can teach us about Jewish political thought today as well as how its values may be applied to the modern Jewish polity known as the state of Israel.
