|Abstract/Description:||Hayim Greenberg on the state and organized religion. Retention of identity and selfhood in instances of societal shifts and when political affiliations are in flux. The state should be limited to temperal matters, not transcental (religious) matters. This means that inversely, Organized religion should not accumulate poltical power. How this applies to the state of Israel and the written constitution. Including specific references of Jewishness is problematic because it will be inherently discriminatory to any group that doesn't ascribe to that particular measurement of Jewishness. To define what constitutes Jewish government is to inversely define all other ideas as inherently "unjewishness." Jewish orthodox groups in Israel who are lobbying for this would be discriminating against women and non-jews. Against the idea of a "Torah Constitution."|
