Video: Annual Robert P. Kogod Lecture from Institute’ International Philosophy Conference

The 2012 Robert P. Kogod Annual Lecture, delivered June 26, 2012, was titled, "Divided Loyalties: The Problem of ‘Dual Sovereignty’ and Constitutional Faith." The lecture was delivered by Prof. Sanford V. Levinson of University of Texas Law School. The lecture’s respondent was Prof. Suzanne Last Stone , iEngage Fellow at Shalom Hartman Institute and professor at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University.

The lecture was the one open event of the 2012 Shalom Hartman Institute International Philosophy Conference, "The Challenges of Sovereignty in a Jewish State," which ran June 24-27, 2012 (4-7 Tammuz 5772).
The conference’s theme was: "The founding of a democratic Jewish State brought to the fore tensions between the various Jewish understandings of the concept of sovereignty and their interaction with contemporary understandings of the concept. In this year’s conference we will explore the origin of sovereignty in Jewish canonical texts as well as the dynamic relationship between the king and the judiciary in Jewish tradition, and we will examine the contribution that the philosophical tradition can make to classic Jewish interpretations of sovereignty."

You care about Israel, peoplehood, and vibrant, ethical Jewish communities. We do too.
