Hod of Tiferet
JTA reports on Rabbis for Human Rights, North America’s new initiative, the In Pursuit of Justice campaign, launched today, Israel’s 60th birthday, in Central Park.
The campaign includes the replanting of olive trees in the West Bank and poor Jewish neighborhoods; a human rights trip to Israel and the West Bank planned for November; and a human rights curriculum based on a Talmud-style commentary on Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
A number of initiatives are included in the campaign. More information as to how you can get involved is available at the website. Also, those who loved the fabulous Human Rights Conference of two years ago, keep your eyes peeled.
