Balfour Declaration to Be Displayed in Tel Aviv’s Independence Hall

Israel is in talks to borrow the document, which embodies a watershed moment in Zionism's diplomatic efforts to establish modern state, from the British National Library.

The Balfour Declaration, the founding document in which the British declared their support for the establishment of “a national home for the Jewish people” in 1917, will be displayed in Israel in two years, Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser has told Haaretz.
