Current Issues in Israeli Education: II

By David Zisenwine

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1996

The author of this article, a teacher of education at Tel-Aviv University, describes the work of Zevulun Hammer (a member of the Mafdal party) as Israel's Minister of Education. The article demonstrates Hammer's commitment to the promotion of Jewish values and culture, and how he has undertaken to achieve this goal in Israel's educational system. It is apparent that Hammer attempted to base his promotion of Jewish values on wide public consensus rather than the ideology of some singular group. This is clearly demonstrated in his involvement in the founding of Tali schools (Hebrew acronym for "augmented Jewish studies").
