Secular and Theocratic State of Israel
R. A. Izakson
The article states the problem of the relationship between secular and religious sectors in the State of Israel. The purpose of this work is to reveal the clerical-secular relationship issues in the political system of the society, and to illustrate the uniqueness and originality of the state and identify the most relevant points of this conflict. The author tries to explain the reasons for tense stand-off between church and state having their origin in the historically and socially conditioned factors. The author comes to the conclusion that it is impossible to define clearly the boundaries between the secular or theocratic nature of power in the state under inquiry.
