The Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Attitude Toward Secular Jewish Sovereignty

David Biale

The workshop will examine why Haredi (or Ultra-Orthodox) thinkers oppose the idea of a secular Jewish state. The primary thinker we will discuss is Joel Teitelbaum, the first rebbe of the Hungarian Satmar dynasty but we will also consider a number of Haredi leaders from early in the twentieth century who laid the foundation for this form of Judaism. This class was taught at the Avi Schaeffer Fund Symposium 2014.
