Author Rabbi Hayyim Hirschensohn
Editor David Zohar
Language Hebrew
Publication year 2012
Publisher The Shalom Hartman Institute

Rabbi Hayyim Hirschensohn was one of the only religious-Zionist thinkers who had the courage to meet the challenges of modernity and grapple with the intricate halakhic problems inherent in the establishment of a modern, democratic Jewish State. Rabbi Hirschensohn devoted the six volumes of Malki Bakodesh to a halakhic discussion of these issues. The present volume is concerned with questions that preoccupied religious Zionists in the first part of the 20th century, including the most appropriate form of government in the Jewish State; setting up Jewish courts of law; the attitude to those who are not observant; the right of women to vote and to be elected as representatives of the public; and more.

David Zohar brings to the public a new, annotated edition of this important work, elucidating the halakhic discussions and explaining all of the people and events mentioned in the book.
