Making the Jewish Case for Human Rights in the UK

Posted on Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Human rights are an essential part of Jewish identity; they are born out of Jewish values and Jewish history and form an intrinsic part of our present and, ultimately, our future.

Making the Jewish Case for Human Rights in the UK is a new booklet from René Cassin. It looks at the basis for human rights in Jewish texts; charts Jewish involvement in the development of human rights; and argues that Jewish values and experience are key to the preservation and advancement of the rights of all people.
