Query to Chabad. Ask a rabbi: december 15,2022
IS there an answear to query incident ID: 5857680?
When the L-d Proclaimed that the Jewish People could only have a
Jewish King and not elect a non jew as a leader over them-does this
prohibition apply to both Jews in Israel...and Jews in exhile as well?
Answer December 20,2022
Weinberg of Chabad:
The special mitzvah's that apply to a king would only apply to a Jewish king.
If Jews are forming a Jewish state, they should presumably appoint Jews to rule them who will follow Jewish Law and not non-Jews.
