Position Papers מימון זר Rinat Gilboa Liorit Gueta Yizhak Geiger Chana Adler

A few years ago, the Shalem Center published a position paper on the history textbook which was used in Grade 9. The paper showed that it had post-Zionist tendencies and the book was removed from the schools.

 However, in recent years, as we learned From the reports of civics and history teachers who have contacted us, not only is this trend still in existence but has intensified many fold. Since then, history and civics textbooks have come into use, which are even worse than the one that was removed. The textbooks are used in junior highs and high schools across Israel.

We have therefore decided to meet this challenge head on and have put together a group to review the textbooks and the curricula that have already been written in these important areas . The goal will be to produce a position paper on shaping the orientation of the next generation with regard to the State's identity, its goals and its relations with the Jewish People (Teachers reported to us that little attention is paid to the relations between Israel and Diaspora Jewry)
