The Independence Tractate

5 Comments 18 September 2011

The Independence Tractate (Massekhet Atzmaut), compiled by the Education Department of Rabbis for Human Rights, is a highly successful educational program, that had now been published in a second edition.

The Independence Tractate is based on the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel, and deals with variety of issues raised by the Declaration itself. Indeed, the Declaration is becoming a watershed in Israeli society today for renewed discourse around acute societal issues.

The Independence Tractate teaches a well-known text from a new and clear perspective. The Independence Tractate helps its readers get acquainted with the foundations which provide a blueprint for the creation of an exemplary society.

The Independence Tractate focuses on the intentions of the authors of the Declaration, and grapples critically with the foundational values of the State of Israel, not in secular terms but rather through the lens of Jewish foundational texts. The Tractate connects between the Jewish character and the Democratic and Zionist characters of the State of Israel. Through the Tractate it is possible to find a correlation between the vision of the Prophets and the vision of the Founders of Israel.

The Independence Tractate deals with the most burning issues in Israeli society through Jewish sources, Zionist texts and International documents. The Tractate includes 116 pages printed on high quality paper, and a guidebook for teachers, students, practitioners, scholars, Rabbis and Yeshivas.

Order a Copy of Rabbis for Human Rights’ “Independence Tractate” and turn the Declaration of Independence into a productive and comprehensive intergenerational discourse that will help you grapple with the issues of past, present and future.

The price of the Independence Tractate is 120 Shekels, including shipping. It is possible to purchase the Independence Tractate online with a credit card. (Please note in the “Notes” section that you are ordering the Independence Tractate, and provide shipping information).
