      Original Balfour Declaration to be Displayed in Israel


      The original copy of the Balfour Declaration from November 1917, which called for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in the land of Israel, will be coming to Israel soon as part of an exhibit to mark the re-opening of Independence House in Tel Aviv. It will mark the first time that the document has left Britain.

      Cabinet Secretary Tzvi Hauser announced, Sunday, that he received agreement in principle for the loan from managers of the British National Library, who will set conditions for the document's limited visit.
