MK Sa'ar: Help Drafted Students!


Minister of Education and Chairman of the Council for Higher Education, Gideon Saar, contact institutions of higher education across the country and urged them to accommodate the needs of students who have been called up to reserve duty as a result of Operation Pillar of Defense.

In his letter to the heads of the academic institutions, Sa’ar stressed that out of necessity many students have been called up for reserve duty and as a result, their studies should not be affected.

"The situation requires us all to join together in an effort to benefit the reservists who bear the burden of our national security by providing them with any assistance and ensuring that their studies will not be effected,” wrote Sa’ar in his letter.
