Rabbis’ group launches justice campaign


Rabbis for Human Rights launched its In Pursuit of Justice campaign on Israel’s 60th anniversary.

The campaign, a project of the left-wing group’s North American wing, 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.

The campaign was launched Thursday at a ceremony in New York’s Central Park.
