The Ministerial Committee approved this morning (Sunday) an amendment to the National Education Law submitted by MK Dr. Shimon Ohayon (Israel Beyitenu). According to the proposed amendment, a paragraph will be added to the law directing that "State education will strengthen the value that the State of Israel is a Jewish State".

MK Ohayon said following the amendment's approval that "the time has come to say and clearly educate this generation and future generations, the State of Israel is a Jewish nation, of which we have dreamed about for 2,000 years, and that we have merited to see.  Each citizen enjoys full rights, but the State of Israel is the home of the Jewish People."
