Pod for Israel – 7 Reforms of Rabbinic Judaism #3 The Abolishment of Government – Dr. Golan Broshi

Dr Broshi continues to expound on the 7 reforms of Rabbinic Judaism. After the destruction of the Temple, Judaism experienced sweeping reformations and in effect also invented their own “New Covenant” of the Oral law. In this episode Dr. Broshi discusses how the Rabbis abolished the 3 branches of government and set up their own judicial branch where they are both lawmaker and judge.
