FOR LAYING ASIDE THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD YE HOLD THE TRADITION OF MEN ... That influence developed from a comparatively small group of people, the Hebrews, whose existence would have passed unnoticed were it not for the uniqueness of their religious belief and practice. Their relation to criticism is their relation “to the capacity to become free.” The result arrived at is: “The Christian has to surmount only one stage, namely, that of his religion, in order to give up religion altogether,” “The Jew, on the other hand, has to break not only with his Jewish nature, but also with the development towards perfecting his religion, a development which has remained alien to him.” (p. 71) Thus, Bauer here transforms the question of Jewish emancipation into a purely religious question.

Since that time every pope has gone further in their statements about the Jews and the importance that we honour their special place.

Like G-d, Moses cared about each individual in the group, and not just about the group as a whole. First, traditional Judaism has influenced political and judicial legislation and state institutions, which have been championed by the various Orthodox political parties and enshrined in the "preservation of the status quo" arrangements through the years.
