If you value Judaism and wish to see it retain its vitality, keep it out of the hands of the state. Is that so complicated?

There should be no place in Judaism or in the state of Israel for religious coercion of any type. This is not a facile concession to modernity, nor to convenience. It is a position rooted in deep theological reflection.

Moshe Koppel wants to clear something up: He's not actually calling for less religious involvement in public life.

It is often remarked that America is the most religious Western democracy because and not in spite of its separation of religion and state. Would an Israel that adopted a similar system be both more democratic and more Jewish?  Yes but also no, argues Ruth Gavison. In the Israeli context, the relevance of the American model is limited.

Moshe Koppel argues brilliantly for the separation of religion and state in Israel. But he makes one mistake: religion is not just one choice among many.
