Sponsored by the Jack Miller Center & Hudson Institute Political Studies

Some say the American Founders pursued a radical separation of religion and politics—but has the Bible’s influence been overlooked? Many of America’s greatest thinkers have looked to the Torah to find the roots of our freedom. The Founders cited the Bible more than almost any other text. The story of Israel has left an indelible mark on American culture, institutions, and politics.

Join the Jack Miller Center and Hudson Institute Political Studies for a panel discussion on the Torah and the American Founding featuring Meir Soloveichik, Robert P. George, Justin Dyer, and Michael Doran, moderated by Samuel Goldman.

A reception will follow the panel.

The Jack Miller Center is a nationwide network of scholars and teachers committed to educating the next generation about the core texts and ideas of the American political tradition. We aim to expand the pipeline of scholars dedicated to teaching America’s founding principles and history, to seed and cultivate college campus centers for the study of the American political tradition, and to advance the teaching of American citizenship in K-12 schools centered around our history and foundational texts.

Hudson Institute Political Studies offers an education in political theory and practice that broadens and deepens understanding of public policy and American political principles. By studying the most consequential ideas of the greatest political minds, students seek to determine—and meet—the demands of a free society and a just republic. Political Studies includes two core programs: an undergraduate Summer Fellowship in theory and practice and a graduate level Policy Certificate Program on pressing current issues.
