What are the three kinds of leadership the Torah requires the Jewish people to create when they become Sovereign in their own Land? What are their roles and the potential dangers inherent in the powers they hold?

In this week’s Torah Talk, Zvi is joined by Tovah Leah Nachmani to discuss Parshat Shoftim’s profound insights into the complexities and potential pitfalls of leadership. We will examine the various leadership roles presented in this parsha, their responsibilities, and the inherent dangers these positions hold, offering a profound insight into shaping a distinctive nation while being attuned to the broader world.
