Jewish Territoriality between Land and State

This article concerns the polarisation of the concepts of 'sanctity' and 'sovereignty' that accentuates the problem of the relation between political sovereignty and national bonds. The association of religious affinity with the relatively recent phenomenon of nation-state sovereignty has led many to see religious connotations in political sovereignty - for example, the traditional, religious bond with the Land of Yisrael, which much of the more secular Israeli public feels has existed for generations. Conversely, national sovereignty continually changes form, not always conforming to traditional, religious perceptions of dominion over the land. This raises problems about the link between Jewish religious laws and the political world.
