Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.
Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) June 09, 2013
More than 100 teens from the city of Ramla learned of the 30 rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights through seminars provided by the Public Affairs Department of the Scientology Center of Tel Aviv.
- The students watched the documentary The Story of Human Rights and discovered “human rights are the rights you have simply because you are human.”
- They gained an understanding of each of these rights by watching a series of Youth for Human Rights public service announcements that bring each of these rights to life. Youth for Human Rights is a program supported by Scientologists around the world.
- They drew sketches to illustrate these rights.
- They crafted and performed skits to illustrate how these rights pertain to their own lives.
The auditorium and seminar rooms at the Center’s new home, the fully restored historic Alhambra Theater, dedicated in August 2012, provides Center staff with facilities to extend their human rights initiative and other humanitarian programs to schools and community groups throughout the country.
Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream,” and the Scientology religion is based on the principles of human rights. The Code of a Scientologist calls on all members of the religion to dedicate themselves “to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.”
