One description of the people of Israel is Kahal, a category that the Talmud is also concerned with. This category was further employed later in the middle ages, and was given to the Jewish community, although some times with a little twist, the Kehila. This paper will focus mainly on the question of the formation of the Kahal as a large political body in the Bible and in the Talmud, and explore the political implications that can be derived from it. The Kahal as a spontaneously-defined, non-organized political body must be clarified. To this end, I will borrow theoretical frameworks of Friedrich Hayek and Michael Polanyi.
