Begin Year in Primary Schools

Begin and Ben-Gurion Themes of Next Curriculum

[Minister of Education] Gideon Saar has announced that the personas of ideological and political rivals David Ben Gurion and Menachem Begin will be the educational theme of the next school year. Pupils will become familiarized with each unique personality, and be encouraged to walk in the respective leadership footsteps of the pair. As part of the curriculum, marking the 100th birthday of Menachem Begin and the 40th anniversary of the passing of David Ben Gurion, students will attend numerous field trips to national heritage sites such as the Ben Gurion museum in S’deh Boker and the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem.
