As the academic year draws to a close, a group of girls from a high school in Milan, Italy will accomplish something unusual and opportune—acquire a diploma from the Israel Ministry of Education. The Te’udat Bagrut is the official Israeli matriculation certificate attesting to graduation from high school; it’s also a prerequisite for higher education in Israel. According to Rabbi Igal Hazan, director of administration and development at the Joe Nahmad High School in Milan—a Jewish institution run by Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement in Italy—the impetus for starting the program came, in part, from a desire to spend more time teaching Jewish history and traditions.

The Israeli Inter-University Committee has recently decided to recognize Oral Torah (Toshba) as a general culture subject towards entitlement to a high school matriculation certificate. This now means that a student who studies this subject for an extended matriculation exam will have it recognized by the universities as an academic subject for university acceptance. It is expected that this development will bring about a significant rise in the number of high school students in non-religious government schools who will choose to study this subject as part of their matriculation curriculum.
