Children and the Right to Vote
How does Judaism view the role of children’s authority in communal life and how does age affect political judgment? Discover how political thought intersects with Judaism’s rich textual tradition about the points at which children are deemed responsible for their actions and competent to make decision and commitments that require mature intent and awareness.
