Jews and Human Rights analyzes the role of Jews in the formation of international human rights efforts throughout the U.S., Israel, and the Former Soviet Union. It examines this human rights work as part of a total system of Jewish political commitments, a system shaped by both human rights history and Jewish history. Jews and Human Rights argues that protecting human rights has been a persistent, if not always predominant, feature of Jews' political mission in the world.
