Downloadable lesson plan (along with accompanying texts for use by educators) “‘It Will be Based on Freedom, Justice and Peace as Envisaged by the Prophets of Israel’: The Meaning and Limits of Freedom” is from Rabbis for Human Right’s Independence Tractate, a unique Talmudic style commentary of Israel’s Declaration of Independence. The lesson is designed to encourage critical thinking regarding the “limits of freedom on different levels, and the conflicts that arise when freedoms are restricted in order to safeguard other values and liberties.”
