Baruch-Lev Kelman is the Yeshiva University Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought programming officer. Baruch's "Separation of Synagogue & State in Jewish Law - Fact or Fiction?" presentation is the second seminar in the Virtual Roundtable livestreamed speakers' series. He will explore the widespread view that attributes the concept of a separation between church & state to Jewish Law. He will also study the arguments made by proponents of this view, examine the role of the High Priest, King, and High Court in Jewish Law, and discuss how modern political philosophers have proposed to revive ancient Jewish political systems in modern Israel.
