Israel and America: Modern legacies of the ancient Hebrew Republic

Welcome to the Two Israels Project!

We’re glad you’re here!

The Two Israels Project explores topics of comparative governance as practiced in Israel and the United States, two different legacies of “The Hebrew Republic.” As such, it is an ongoing conversation about today’s state of “The Hebrew Republic.” It is an initiative to forge a deep, meaningful bond of common values and identity in those values.


While the “Two Israels,” Israel and the United States, share similar values, national purpose, and philosophical foundations, they were formed under different circumstances and have experienced different historical paths. They were informed by different philosophies. They face similar challenges in different ways. As such, the enterprise begins with questions.

America-Israel-Lapel-Pin_largeWhich problems of national culture and governance are faced by Israel and the United States? How do Israel and the United States approach their mandates differently? What can “The Two Israels” learn from one another?

What the Two Israels Project is NOT:

The Two Israels Project DOES NOT promote or support any kind of “replacement theology.” It does not question the specification of the Jewish People as the descendants of the biblical Hebrew nation and the related protagonists of prophecy as stated in the Torah (Old Testament).

The Two Israels Project DOES NOT propose that the United States should be some kind of replacement or extension of the land or State of Israel NOR vice-versa.

The Two Israels Project IS NOT a theological argument. While biblical concepts of justice, charity,  individual rights, and governance might be cited from scripture, this IS NOT a discussion about divine origin. While the project might discuss natural law, it does not discuss the nature of God. While the project might discuss morality, values, and human motivation, it IS NOT a discussion on spiritual salvation, messianism, or the afterlife. The “Two Israels” is a comparative study of governance based on the historic concept of The Hebrew Republic in political philosophy.
