Declaration of Independence
We hereby declare
The spiritual father of the Jewish State
The realization of the age-old dream
By the Elected Constituent Assembly
Their ancient homeland
Loving peace
But defend itself
Like all other nations
Catastrophe which befell the Jewish people
Regular authorities of the State
A thriving community
Immigration and Ingathering of the Exiles
Their spiritual, religious and political identity
To all its inhabitants
The Holy Places of all religions
Member of the community of nations
Created cultural values
The eternal Book of Books
