The Law of the Land: Legitimacy of Government According to the Torah With a Focus on the State of Israel
We find the first mention of the idea of respecting the law of the land in the book of Jeremiah, but what are the parameters? What if the law is patently unjust?
Would it apply in a Jewish State, where, at least theoretically, the Torah should be the law?
By what right can a government limit my freedom of action?
All of these questions sparked great debates within Judaism. I will be dealing with these questions in this booklet.
Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi s”t,is in fact a pen name. The author has decided to release his book under an assumed name since the information in this book is controversial, and loaded with hot-button topics. As described in the book, most rabbis would not only shy away from these issues but would also shun anyone who raises them. Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi is a brilliant Torah scholar with a wide array of knowledge in many areas including Torah, Talmud, halacha, world history, and Jewish History. The Rabbi has studied and corresponded with some of the greatest Torah minds of both this generation and the previous one. His source-based approach, wide knowledge base, and unique life experience lend a perspective like none-other in this day and age.
