      Rivlin to Start School Year in Itamar


      Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin will be in the town of Itamar in Samaria on Wednesday to open the new school year. After meeting with local first graders, Rivlin plans to visit the home of the Fogel family.

      The school year is to begin on the first day of the Hebrew month of Elul in Itamar, as in many other religious Jewish schools, rather than on the first day of September. Public schools will open one day later.
