Rabbi Chaim Navon is a prolific author, well respected columnist for the Hebrew language newspaper Makor Rishon, and a popular lecturer and teacher.

He speaks with Eve Harrow about some of the reasons why the National Religious sector has not been able to parlay their societal presence into political power.

Do we ascribe too much holiness to the public arena and expect too much from our representatives? How does the Bible describe leadership?
