      On Friday, 15 th of December, a symposium was held at the Belgium House on Edmond J. Safra campus, about the book by Prof. Chaim Gans: A Political Theory for the Jewish People.. The symposium was held in cooperation of the Hebrew University's Faculty of Law and the Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies Journal..

Self-reflection on the nature of politics or even recognition of a distinctive realm of ‘politics’ (as opposed to ‘religion’) is missing from the biblical record, in his reading. That is the subject of this book, an effort on the part of a significant selection of the greatest scholars in Jewish studies in the first part of the post-modern epoch, whose fields range from Bible to Jewish history, from Jewish law to theology, as well as political science, to begin the exploration of the Jewish people as a polity with its.

Covenantal Rights is a groundbreaking work of political theory: a comprehensive, philosophically sophisticated attempt to bring insights from the Jewish political tradition into current political and legal debates about rights and to bring rights discourse more fully into Jewish thought.
