Yehuda Goldberg is the Yeshiva University Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought rabbinic intern. Yehuda's "The Melech and Montesquieu" presentation is the fifth seminar in the Virtual Roundtable livestreamed speakers' series. Yehuda will explore key features of the American political system–the notion of “separation of powers”. This feature is essential to the healthy functioning of American democracy and is often highlighted at moments of great political tension. This discussion will reflect on how this concept was utilized in Biblical Israel and the broader implications of a separation of powers from a historic Jewish perspective.
