Meitarim is Making News

In 2009 Meitarim initiated the foundation of a task force including organizations and institutions that, similar to Meitarim, are supporting serious pluralistic education in their school networks in a multitude of capacities. These frameworks include important organizations such as Tali, Morasha, the Be’eri Hartman Schools, and Keshet, among others. Presently, the task force consists of over 250 schools with more than 100,000 children.

The main goal of the task force is to strategize on how best to lobby the government of Israel to implement the law regarding the Third Stream of Jewish Education that was passed in the Knesset in July 2008. Since the founding of the task force in 2009, 300 additional schools have approached Meitarim expressing interest in joining the new stream of Jewish Education when this becomes financially viable.

The task force held its first official meeting in the fall of 2011. Its members are currently working through the bureaucratic matters regarding the full implementation of the Third Stream of Jewish Education legislation.
