Freedom, Rights, and Responsibilities

Students look at the primary sources that emerged from the Exodus (the Ten Commandments) and the War of Independence (the Declaration of Independence) and examine how each attempts to construct a free society and a definition of freedom. They read and discuss the editorial from The American Jewess. Students discuss what the author meant, such as the similarities between the Fourth of July and Passover.
