From Declaration to Reality: Implementing Israel’s Declaration of Independence in the First Two Decades after the Establishment of the State — Selected Documents
While Israel gears up to celebrate its 65th birthday next week, an online project is offering its residents and supporters a chance to look back on the words, reports and documents that shaped its history.
The Israel State Archives and the Center for Educational Technology have joined forces to create an online Hebrew exhibit of 120 documents showing how Israel dealt with issues ranging from education, foreign relations, immigrant absorption, the Holocaust, justice, issues of religion and state and Arab relations. The online exhibit, entitled "From Declaration to Reality: Implementing Israel’s Declaration of Independence in the First Two Decades after the Establishment of the State — Selected Documents," traces correspondence from the state's establishment through the end of the Six-Day War. The documents include minutes from meetings of the cabinet, the Knesset, ministerial committees and other agencies; reports, memoranda and laws.
