The Ministry of Education has declared the theme of this academic year to be “Showing the Way — 75 years of Israeli independence. This was reported by the press service of the ministry. It will accompany the activities of the education system. The theme was chosen in connection with the 75th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel, the 50th anniversary of the death of David Ben-Gurion and the 70th anniversary of his move to the Negev. The theme was chosen in connection with one of the main goals of the Ministry of Education — development and consolidation of the Israeli identity of schoolchildren in our common space in the State of Israel.
The topic will be taught throughout the year, at all levels of the educational system, with adaptation to the specific needs of each society. Students will get acquainted with the leaders of Israel who have contributed to the development and prosperity of the state. A variety of social activities are planned for schoolchildren within the framework of this theme, special events and theme days, including extracurricular activities throughout the country.
Education Minister Dr. Yifat Shasha-Biton said: “There have been many leaders and manifestations of leadership in Israeli and Zionist history. This year we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Israel's independence, as well as the 50th anniversary of the death of David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister and chief architect of the founding of the state. We have decided that this school year will be dedicated to leadership and leaders, so that students will learn and learn about the rich heritage and history of innovators and pioneers, and to strengthen the sense of responsibility and tolerance that underpins the development of a decent society towards others. Knowing our past, learning from history, we will be able to create and shape the leaders of the future.” 75 Years of Israel's Independence” perfectly matches one of our goals this year — develop and consolidate the Israeli identity in the common space. Throughout the year, students of the educational system, from kindergarten to high school, will make an exciting journey dedicated to what leadership is, learn about the activities of David Ben-Gurion and other leaders who created our state with their own hands. Through this, students will explore their unique heritage, the essence of their Israeli identity, from different angles, while discussing the challenges facing our society and ways to realize our shared dream. After 75 years, we can proudly assess the progress made.
