Mr. Cohen

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“It is true that the American legal system derives much of its content from the Old Testament [Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

When we were growing up, my friends and I would take great pride in discovering the Jewish sources of American laws, such as: the privilege against self-incrimination, the requirement of two witnesses for certain types of crime, and the very idea that punishment must be proportionate to the crime committed.”
