High Court President Dorit Beinisch Retires

Rafi Harkham
Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

The 9th president of the Supreme Court of Israel, Beinisch presided over an active term, in which she wrote landmark decisions like the 2005 ruling against the IDF’s use of “human shields,” the 2007 ruling that Israel’s separation fence route must be modified, and the 2009 ruling declaring private prisons unconstitutional. But the most memorable ruling of her legacy may be her penultimate one – the High Court’s revocation of the Tal Law.

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Many of the participants in an emergency conference last night were adamant on the need to “give up our lives” over the preservation of Torah study, in face of a growing public push for Haredi military service. In the Israeli marketplace of ideas, two views competed this morning: “Don’t push them too fast, or you’ll get nothing but conflict” – versus “It’s time for everybody to carry their fair share of the load.” Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman was on the money when he accused retired Supreme Court President Beinisch of committing a hit-and-run…

Parshat Mishpatim: Location! Location! Location!

Rabbi David Hertzberg
Friday, February 17th, 2012

However, such laws within a Jewish society are very much religious laws as well. To demonstrate this point the Sanhedrin, which was ultimately responsible for all legal aspects of society, was housed in the Temple. By being there it was made clear to all that, for Jewish society, the interpersonal societal laws were Divine in origin, just as the ritual laws were.
