Deuteronomy 16:18 "Appoint judges and officers in all your gates"

The Torah contains laws and rules governing every aspect of our lives.

It deals not only with how we pray in the synagogue, but how we should grow our crops, run our businesses and set up laws for our people.

But who will enforce Torah law?

Who will make sure that it is followed?

This job is left to the courts and police.

They are put in charge of assuring that law and order be kept.

Every city has its own district police stations and courts.

It is their job to supervise the public and enforce the law.

This system was designed by Torah.

We are commanded to appoint police and judges in all settlements.
