Netanyahu: Talmud Will be the Basis of Israeli Law


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Wednesday evening with the head of the hareidi division of the Likud, Yaakov Vider, and said that the law he intends to submit defining Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people will include a clause that states that Israeli law will be based on the Torah and on Jewish tradition.

"In the law, we will define the Talmud as the basis for the Israeli legal system," Netanyahu told Vider, adding that the law “is a very important one that will affect how Israel looks in the future.”
