The Education Ministry plans to introduce a new subject into the school curriculum, “Jewish-Israeli culture,” which ministry sources say will be pluralistic and not strictly Orthodox Jewish. In the first stage, due to begin this year, teachers, students and parents at all grade levels will take part in “learning and experience sessions” focused on Jewish texts. Next year, the subject will become a formal part of the curriculum from kindergarten through 10th grade in all secular Jewish state schools.

On average, such colleges had higher admissions rates than those geared toward non-religious schools.
